Federal investigators have concluded two Anchorage commercial pilots failed to maintain minimal clearance while circling the Dillingham airport before they died in a 2013 crash.

A National Transportation Safety Board report out Monday also faults the air traffic controller who issued ambiguous instructions and didn’t notice the plane’s descent to a dangerous altitude.

The Ace Air Cargo plane crashed March, 8, 2013, about 20 miles northeast of Dillingham in southwest Alaska.
