284 The final NTSB report is out for Transair flight 810, which crashed at night in the ocean shortly after takeoff from Hawaii. The pilots thought that they had a rare double engine failure. In fact, they had just a single engine failure, but they left both throttles at idle, dooming the plane. The probable cause said “contributing to the accident were the flight crew’s ineffective crew resource management, high workload, and stress.” Max talks about the huge distraction that consumed both pilots for a half hour, just moments before they took off.
