Crew action focus of crash probe

Airplane crashes and the media -- it's inevitable when airlines crash planes that speculation over the cause in the media will run at a fever pitch for weeks. This article from today's New York Times is based on sources with knowledge of a reconstruction by safety investigators of what happened to Colgan Air's Flight 3407 that crashed last week at Buffalo, so we give it credibility. The article attribues some of its information to the Wall Street Journal, which also quoted anonymous sources.
