Clarence Center, NY (February 13, 2009) -- The crew of the commuter airliner that abruptly fell into a house in suburban Buffalo discussed ice buildup on the windshield and the wings, investigators of the crash that killed 50 people said today.
At an afternoon briefing, National Transportation Safety Board member Steven Chealander said an initial examination of data recorders showed that the crew tried to adjust the landing gear. That could imply that they were trying to gain control of Continental Connection Flight 3407, which crashed Thursday night.
