 Fatal Embraer Events
The NTSB also stated that contributing to the accident was the deficient design of the propeller control unit which did not correctly evaluate the failure mode that occurred during this flight, which resulted in an uncommanded and uncorrectable movement of the blades of the airplane's left propeller below the flight idle position.
The crew was unable to maintain altitude and diverted to a nearby airport.
According to various news reports, the aircraft spiraled into the ground and was destroyed by the impact and subsequent fire.

 Embraer: An Ugly Duckling Finds Its Wings
Embraer delivered $446 million in profits on $3.83 billion in revenues last year, and 93% of those sales were outside Brazil.
And its current wave of success stems from a decision in the late 1990s to invest $1 billion to design a new, larger plane that seats from 70 to 118 passengers for rapidly growing low-cost airlines.
Embraer engineers came up with a new fuselage design it called "double bubble" that allows plenty of head space, legroom, and luggage space, and eliminates the middle seat.

Embraer said it will start delivering the 50 E145 and 50 larger E190 jets in 2007, and analysts described the order as a significant entry into the important Asian market for a company whose commercial jet sales have been largely stagnant in recent years.
It also means Embraer will deliver more planes than the 150 that had been predicted for 2007 and increase deliveries in 2008.
Embraer jet sales stalled in recent years as its main European and U.S. airline customers faced rising fuel costs, stiff competition and restrictions related to terrorist threats.

Last year, Embraer's net income was its best ever at 1,256m Brazilian reais ($562m; £326m), 114% up on its results for 2003, although the recent strength of the Brazilian currency looks set to squeeze profits this year.
