Pilot, FAA & NTSB did NOT disclose the truth of the accident, Birds can NOT cause Both engine Fire!
NTSB INVESTIGATING RUNWAY INCURSION AT CHARLOTTE DOUGLAS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating a runway incursion that occurred on Friday morning at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) involving a general aviation aircraft and a regional jet airliner bound for New Bern, NC (EWN).
At about 10:17 a.m. on May 29, a PSA Airlines CRJ-200 regional jet operated as US Airways Express flight 2390, was cleared for takeoff on runway 18L. After the regional jet was into its takeoff roll, a Pilatus PC-12, a single engine turboprop aircraft, was cleared to taxi into position and hold farther down the same runway in preparation for a departure roll that was to begin at the taxiway A intersection. After the ground-based collision warning system (ASDE-X) alerted controllers to the runway incursion, the takeoff clearance for the regional jet was cancelled. The pilot of the PC-12, seeing the regional jet coming down the runway on a collision course, taxied the PC-12 to the side of the runway. The FAA reported that the regional jet stopped approximately 10 feet from the PC-12.
Visual meteorological conditions prevailed with 9 miles visibility. There were no reported injuries to any of the 42 passengers or crew of three aboard the jet, or to any of those on the PC-12.
As Jeff Glor reports, investigators continue their look into the cause of flight 3407's crash. Harry Smith spoke with the NTSB's Steve Chealander about the plane's deicing technology.
The operator likely tried to stop the DC Metro train running on automatic that crashed into another train, reports Nancy Cordes. Harry Smith speaks to the NTSB about further clues in the crash.
NTSB pinned most of the blame for the plane crash in Buffalo, New York on the pilots and insufficient training. Federal regulators promised to take action but, as Nancy Cordes reports, little has been done.
