The commander of Pope Air Force Base where 20 paratroopers were killed by fiery debris from a mid-air collision said yesterday that human error and miscommunication were among possible causes of the tragedy, Reuter reports from Fayetteville, North Carolina. Brigadier-General Bobby Floyd said, however, that a definitive reason for the crash could not be determined until after a formal investigation.
