Air Force Blames Pilot Error And More In Brown Crash


WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, June 7) -- Air Force investigators have blamed a combination of pilot error and outdated navigational equipment on the aircraft for the April 3 jet crash that killed Commerce Secretary Ron Brown in Croatia.

A report, to be released today, concludes several problems contributed to the tragedy. "It was not one single problem or mistake," Defense Secretary William Perry told the Associated Press. "There was a string of events which led to the accident." Three Air Force commanders have been reassigned because of the accident.
