According to the accident report, the aircraft gave the crew several warnings that they were too high before the crash. The glideslope deviation
indicator was in the full down position. As they passed the outer marker, which was supposed to be at 2800 feet, they were still level at 3400 feet.
They began to descend after passing the outer marker, but the aircraft had captured a false 9 degree glideslope reflection.
At the middle marker, 0.6 nm from the runway, they were passing through 3300 feet. The required altitude was 2290 feet, which would put them 235 feet
over the airfield elevation. The aircraft wound up overflying the entire runway.
