Pilot error caused last year's fatal crash of a Colgan Air commuter plane near Buffalo, the National Transportation Safety Board said Tuesday. But there was plenty of blame to go around in the board's report, which also found failures in training, regulation and company culture. "The report we are considering today concludes our accident investigation, but in many respects, it is just the beginning," said NTSB Chairwoman Deborah Hersman, noting more than two dozen recommendations that emerged from the board's investigation of the accident, which killed 50.
