Probable cause. ... [The National Transportation Safety Board determines that] the probable cause of this accident was the loss of control in flight as a result of a malfunction of the left engine propeller control unit which allowed the propeller blade angles to go below the flight idle position. Thank me very much.

That was the best, incomplete ending I could have asked for. "It's no use" *CRASH*

You know it's bad when they don't interview someone from the plane

I just love a happy ending: “Oh God, it’s no use!” It sounds like my marriage.

"The probable cause of this accident was the loss of control in flight as a result of a malfunction of the left engine propeller control unit which allowed the propeller blade angles to go below the flight idle position. Contributing to the accident was the deficient design of the propeller control unit by Hamilton Standard and the approval of the design by the Federal Aviation Administration. The design did not correctly evaluate the failure mode that occurred during this flight, which resulted in an uncommanded and uncorrectable movement of the blades of the airplane’s left propeller below the flight idle position."

A routine landing does NOT just turn into a pilot's nightmare; it becomes EVERYONE's nightmare.
Can't believe flaws in this plane killed 3 innocent crew members and 20 innocent passengers. :(

If they are a thousand feet from the runway, one wonders why he didn't just cut power to either the left engines, or both.
