WASHINGTON -- Some media reports have made Capt. Marvin Renslow, the pilot of the doomed Continental Connection Flight 3407, look like the sole cause of the Feb. 12 crash, which claimed 50 lives.
But the closer you look at the crash -- and the more you report it -- the more it seems that there may be plenty of blame to go around.
It's suspicious, isn't it, that the Federal Aviation Administration is now investigating whether Colgan Air -- which operated the flight -- over-scheduled its pilots?
And it's suspicious, isn't it, that the National Transportation Safety Board is studying the exotic stall-protection system on the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 and Colgan's training program for pilots that fly the aircraft?
It's enough to make you ask: what else will we learn when the NTSB begins hearings in the crash on Tuesday?
