  2. Evidence Type: Excerpt from Accident Report
    Evidence: "... the Board concludes that the autopilot, and thus the glide slope function of the approach coupler, was disconnected prior to the time the aircraft reached decision height. ... The Safety Board concludes that if the autopilot had not been disengaged until the minimum authorized altitude, or if the nonflying crewmembers had continued to monitor the flight instruments, the aircraft would have reached the runway safely."
