On June 1, 2009, Air France flight 447 crashed into the Atlantic, killing all 228 passengers and crew.

After several years of analysis, investigators concluded that one of the contributing causes of the crash was too much automation. Flight controls of the Airbus A330 were so thoroughly automated that the flight crew had lost their edge. When presented with confusing information, they made poor decisions which resulted in the crash.
