Feb 6th 2010 11:10AM This accident appeared to have a number of contributing factors (like many accidents), any one of which would have led to an uneventful (for the passengers) landing: poor skill of pilot (didn't think anybody remembered his failed check flights! Is failing check flight normal for airline pilots?), icing, fatigue, no inflight deicing equipment (is it possible that 15 years later, after the Pittsburgh crash caused by icing, and the Indiana crash caused by icing, we are STILL talking about this? holy cow!), slowness of the FAA to mandate in flight deicing, perhaps even poor crew management--perhaps if the co pilot had been more forceful, the accident never happens.
