Pilot error caused the February 26 crash of a King Air 200 in Southern Bosnia that killed Macedonian President Boris Trajkovski, six of his aides and the two pilots, according to a Bosnian civil aviation directorate report. The report said the crew made “procedural errors” relating to altitude and distance, were “inadequately prepared” and made “wrong decisions.” Instrument and CVR data showed the two pilots “lacked knowledge of designated approaches to Mostar Airport.”
