    Attendees of the NTSB’s May 12-14 fact-finding hearing on the Feb. 12 crash of Colgan Air Flight 3407 were able to view the safety board’s 3-D reconstruction of the last two minutes of the flight.

    All 49 onboard and one person on the ground were killed when the Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 crashed into a residential neighborhood during approach to Runway 23 at Buffalo (N.Y.) -Niagara International Airport.

    The NTSB’s animation includes aircraft performance data as well excerpts from the flight data recorders, but does not include audio. View the animation here.
