Flight 188 data dump
On Wednesday, the National Transportation Safety Board will release more than 400 pages of material it's gathered in its investigation into why the pilots of Northwest Airlines Flight 188 overshot their Minneapolis destination on October 21, 2009. It will offer no conclusions as to what happened.
I'll be live blogging as I go through the data to see if there's anything new there, and encourage you to join in the conversation with your questions and observations.
