"According to the accident investigation report, the November 2002 Luxair Fokker 50 accident near Luxembourg Airport was caused by the pilot's override of the primary stop on the power levers during an improperly prepared approach. The propeller pitch went into beta mode, causing a decrease in speed and altitude from which recovery was not accomplished." (ASN)
