    Pilots of UPS flight got late altitude warning -NTSB - Reuters

    U.S. government investigators looking into the crash of a UPS cargo plane said on Friday the pilots received a low altitude warning seven seconds before the sound of impact, according to data recovered from the cockpit voice recorder.

    Investigators retrieved data from the flight recorders on Friday that could shed light on Wednesday's fiery crash in Alabama that killed the jet's pilot and co-pilot.

    "We'll know everything that was said in the cockpit," said National Transportation Safety Board investigator Robert Sumwalt. "I personally breathed a huge sigh of relief once I learned we had good data."
