    An unfortunate title, but this is the way all reports are headed. The plane, a B.767 belonged to Atlas Air and three employees were killed. R.I.P.

    Let's hope that they didn't fall asleep. Crew exhaustion was pointed in the media.

    EDIT:
    Security video shows the plane going down in a steep dive without any attempt to pull out

    The aircraft is in the video at a steep descent [a] steep nose-down attitude, NTSB chair Robert Sumwalt said during a press conference on 24 February. I saw no evidence of the aircraft trying to turn or pull up at the last moments.

    The security video was taken from a county jail at a distance of slightly more than 1nm (1.9km) from the site where the Boeing 767-300ER Freighter crashed following a flight from Miami.

    Authorities have confirmed three people were aboard the aircraft. Atlas Air says there were no survivors.

      Horrible. Hope they find the flight recorders. This is quite a mystery. The Lauda Air flight data recorder was destroyed and they were never able to determine exactly what caused the thrust reverser to deploy.
