The AOPA Air Safety Institute examines the circumstances that led to a tragic outcome during a GPS approach at Burley Municipal Airport on April 13, 2022. We look at several risk factors—including weather conditions and a factory's steam stacks located below the flight path, close to the runway threshold—that turned out lethal during the final descent.
