Garuda Indonesia Airlines Flight 200

Garuda Indonesia Airlines Flight 200Wednesday March 7, 2007
While attempting to land, the plane overshot the runway, crashed through the airport barrier fence and burst into flames. The cockpit voice recorder revealed that the pilot and co-pilot were arguing over their speed and wing flap angles moments before the crash. An investigator stated the passenger jet was flying at up to 265 mph, almost double the normal landing speed, while attempting to land. The captain ignored the plane’s automated warning system as it sounded alarms fifteen times. He also ignored calls from the co-pilot to go around and make another approach.
