Human factors cited in French CRJ crash report
7 January 2005

The French BEA released their investigation report into the June 2003 CFIT crash of a Canadair RJ near Brest. It appeared that the crew failed to select the APPR mode prior to the approach and that they were first focused on vertical and thereafter only horizontal navigation, failing to note their dangerous descent in time.
