Minnesota Public Radio examines the issue of commuter airline safety snd found an unsettling inability of the Federal Aviation Administration, Northwest Airline and the airline's major partner to adequately ensure the safety of passengers. The investigation also found the commuter pilots are using a dangerous and unapproved approach during icy conditions called the "slam dunk approach" which involves a rapid descent through icy conditions to the runway; as a result of the series, the FAA increased its oversight of commuter airlines in the Northwest, Apr. 4 - 7, 1994.
