    Thanks for the link to Flight Track Log.

    1,400 FPM Descending, 800' AGL, 145 KTS, and speed decaying fast.

    It sure looks like the pilot wasn't doing anything but pulling back on the yoke, fixated on the sight picture.  At that rate of descent it was already too late, too low, and too slow to do anything.  I suspect the 2nd was also puckered up.

    They should have declared a missed approach at 2,000, and even then would have been blowing shingles off roofs.
