Feds interview crew of plane that overshot airport

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - There's no word yet on just what the pilot and co-pilot of a Northwest Airlines plane told federal investigators who interviewed them yesterday.

The investigators are trying to find out why the plane flew 150 miles past its destination of Minneapolis on Wednesday, as air traffic controllers tried for more than an hour to contact the crew.

The co-pilot has said he and the pilot weren't sleeping and weren't arguing.

Northwest Airlines says it's cooperating and doing its own internal investigation.
