    The videos mirror witness reports that described the aircraft struggling to gain altitude before veering into the building.

    Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board said the crew commented on a problem with the left engine in the moments before the plane went down. The comments were captured on the cockpit voice recorder that was recovered from the debris.

    Investigators have not yet determined what caused the plane to crash. It could take 18 months for the full report to be released, investigators say.
