Northwest Airlink 5719 is about to land at Chisolm-Hibbing airport in Minnesota. Poor weather and a tail wind have forced the pilots to change their plans and land on the runway in the opposite direction from what they were initially cleared for. The plane makes a steep descent through icy conditions in the dark of night and impact trees two miles short of the runway. What caused this accident? Find out on this episode of Black Box Down.
