"The Dutch investigators focused blame on the pilots for failing to react properly when an automated system malfunctioned and caused the plane to plummet into a field, killing nine people.
The fault was hardly the crew’s alone, however. Decisions by Boeing, including risky design choices and faulty safety assessments, also contributed to the accident on the Turkish Airlines flight."
TK1951 had a faulty altimeter, which led to the malfunction of the auto throttle (automatic speed control), the pilots were not monitoring the speed, they didn’t notice they were slowing down and the aircraft crashed because it didn’t have enough speed to fly.
A Gulf Air Airbus crashed for the same reason, pilots failing to monitor speed and thrust after finger trouble caused the automatic system to slow down the aircraft.
