The NTSB on Wednesday released hundreds of pages of documents from the investigation of Northwest Flight 188, which flew beyond its destination airport by more than 100 miles on Oct. 23. Investigators found a series of communication errors and technological glitches that contributed to the confusion around the plane's 77-minute radio silence. Pilot Timothy Cheney said he was "in shock" when he checked his instruments following an inquiry from flight attendant Barbara Logan. "You don't know how sorry I am" for the incident, Cheney told investigators.
