Something came in from the people investigating the plane crash that killed Paul Wellstone. They found that a) there was no engine or propeller failure and b) the the craft was approaching too slowly, which is the first no-no they teach you in pilot training. And not just a little too slowly either.
The parsimonious explanation is that the pilots were dumbasses. A question that can be raised: did the pilots know better and try to get the speed up, but couldn't for whatever reason? Any other record of thos pilots coming in slower than they should? And so on and so on and so on.
