    That's what I heard. Amazing that it's only two.

    I doubt that was the issue. They were probably trying to come in just over the threshold and misguaged it.

    The later the report, the more accurate it likely is. Give it a day for the truth.

    Well, I find it unlikely is was anything but pilot error, but it could have been something else.

    Not really. From one photo I saw, it appears the tail broke behind the rear cabin area.

    Was it true that this flight was initially supposed to land on a different runway? Could the height of runway A be lower than the height of runway B and some pilot adjustment need to be made?

    Sure they could have run out of gas a mile and a minute too soon, had their engines rollback, and couldn't get power to bring it up. I am skeptical that was the case, but big planes have been known to run out of fuel because they took off with not enough on board due to poor planning; extended waits in line; and I am thinking it may have happened once to a USAir flight that didn't emphasis to the tower until it was too late that they were running dry during a weather delay that kept getting them pushed off of their landing.

    If it was something else, we'll never know. The FAA and NTSB are gummint entities, and the gummint is under the control of lobbyists employed by Boeing, who have an interest in deflecting all liability for the crash to the pilots.

    We can only hope a firefighter goes in there and rips off the flight recorder, and sends it to an independent (or foreign) agency for inspection.
