UPDATE: NTSB: Pilot Error In ’08 Minnesota Crash That Killed 8

Minnesota NewsMINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The National Transportation Safety Board says pilot error was largely to blame for a 2008 business jet crash in Minnesota that killed eight people.

The Hawker Beechcraft jet crashed July 31, 2008, while attempting a go-around after touching down at the airport in Owatonna, in southern Minnesota. NTSB investigators say pilots began braking too late.

The crash killed the two pilots from Pennsylvania and six passengers from New Jersey. They were casino and construction executives bound for the southern Minnesota city to meet with a local glass company to discuss an Atlantic City casino project.
