In a blink of an eye, a commuter plane carrying 11 passengers from Laredo to Houston plummets to Earth, dropping thousands of feet in mere seconds. The aircraft slams into a farmer's field with an impact so violent, the wreckage is not even recognizable as an airplane. What caused the crash of Continental Express Flight 2574? Was it human error? Mechanical failure? An act of terrorism? Investigators sift through the scattered remains for answers but it isn't until they question the plane's inspectors that the tragic details come to light.
