A private plane flying over New England suddenly and violently tilted up and then down, a sudden movement that fatally injured former White House official Dana Hyde, security investigators reported Friday. transportation in the United States.

Experts said the incident occurred after the pilots, following automatic warnings from the aircraft's navigation system, disconnected a system that helps the aircraft remain stable.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) did not reach any conclusions in its preliminary report about the root cause of the deadly crash that happened on March 3, but it did describe a number of things that went wrong before and after.

After several alerts in the cockpit of the Bombardier plane, the pilots followed a checklist and deactivated a switch that "clips" or adjusts the tail stabilizer, according to the report.

The plane's nose then pitched up, subjecting the people inside to forces four times that of gravity, then pointed down and turned up again before the pilots regained control.

The pilots indicated to investigators that they did not experience turbulence, as the NTSB had claimed in its initial assessment the day after the incident.

Last year, the trim system on the twin-engine Bombardier Challenger 300 was the subject of a Federal Aviation Administration instruction that pilots must perform additional safety checks before flights.

Bombardier did not directly respond to the content of the report, saying in a statement that it is "carefully reviewing it."

The Canadian manufacturer had previously said it remained confident in its Challenger 300 jets and their seaworthiness.

"We will continue to fully support and assist all authorities as needed," the company said on Friday.

The two pilots and three passengers were traveling from Keene, New Hampshire, to Leesburg, Virginia, but had to divert to Bradley Airport, Connecticut.

Hyde, 55, a resident of Cabin John, Maryland, was taken to a hospital, where she died of blunt force injuries.

Hyde worked in the Bill Clinton and Barack Obama Administrations and was an adviser to the September 11, 2001 Commission, formerly known as the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks on the United States.

It is not known if Hyde was wearing a seatbelt in his seat or if he was standing in the cabin of the plane, owned by Conexon, a company based in Kansas City, Missouri.

The report indicates that the pilots aborted the initial takeoff because a plastic cover was not removed from one of the outer tubes that determine airspeed, and took off with a rudder failure alert activated.

Another warning indicated a failure in the autopilot stabilizer trim.

According to the report, the plane pitched up sharply when the pilots switched the stabilizer trim switch from main to off while going through checklist procedures.

According to the report, the aircraft oscillated violently up and down and "stick thrust" was activated, meaning the computer thought the plane was in danger of stalling.

John Cox, a former airline pilot and safety consultant, said there are "definitely problems" with the pilots' pre-flight actions, but said they reacted correctly by following the checklist to respond to the ruling.

The crew was made up of two experienced pilots with 5,000 and 8,000 flight hours and with the necessary qualifications to fly for an airline.

They were both relatively new to this model aircraft because they got their certifications last October.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued its instruction on Bombardier Challenger 300 jets last year, after reviewing multiple cases in which the aircraft's horizontal stabilizer caused the plane's nose to roll down after the pilot tried to get the aircraft to climb. .
