Taiwan's Aviation Safety Council official Thomas Wang explains findings in the report released on the TransAsia Airways Flight GE235 crash last February, during a press conference in New Taipei City, Taiwan, Thursday, July 2, 2015. A pilot described by colleagues as nervous and hasty mistakenly throttled down a still-running engine following a glitch with the other engine in an airline crash that killed 43 people, flight safety officials said Thursday. A preliminary investigation after the Feb. 4 crash already had indicated that the pilot shut off the remaining engine after one of them went idle.
