They (CNN) are known to cross their numbers. It may be her total time, or her years are wrong. As for the accident I responded this to an earlier blog:
It looks like everything happened right as they were coming up on the LOM (marker). She was cleared, established, coming over the LOM and had just been passed off to the tower by approach.
It looks like it is all ice related. That is the exact point where everything would have been deploying out and the power is being slightly reduced. The crash site is not even a half mile from the NDB-LOM ( KLUMP). It may be the result of a partial or un-equal deployment of any one of the flaps, slats, or gear… or just a total ice function effecting lift. The -8s only have leading edge boots and don’t have heated or bleeding wings. I know a little Cessna can gain several hundred pounds a minute in really bad freezing rain. As for the slight LOC (localizer) fluctuation that was reported, that is normal when another aircraft crosses the LOC runway and that is what had happened as the aircraft that made that particular report was inbound. No one was crossing the active when 3407 was on the approach.
I am trying to figure out which it is. Ice effecting mechanical systems or Ice effecting the wings and weight. There are supposed to be sensors that prevent differential deployment of flaps, slats, and speed brakes, but I don’t know the exact details of the -8 400s
