Tech problem, pilots caused Turkish Airlines crash

A common malfunction with Boeing radio altimeters, compounded by several errors by pilots, led to last year's fatal crash by a Turkish Airlines plane as it dropped short of the runway at Amsterdam's airport, according to investigators' final report released Thursday.
Flight TK1951 — a Boeing 737 carrying 135 passengers and crew from Istanbul — crashed 1.5 kilometers (1 mile) from Schiphol Airport on Feb. 25, 2009. The three pilots were among nine people killed.
