The U.S. government should review Canada's findings in the crash of a military charter plane that killed 256 Americans, says a congressional panel that probed a possible terrorist link to the 1985 disaster.

Canada should turn over its investigative reports on the Gander, Newfoundland, crash to the FBI while the National Transportation Safety Board analyzes the cause of the tragedy, Rep. William Hughes, D-N.J., said Wednesday.FBI agents were barred from the crash scene, and the NTSB embraced Canada's findings about the cause without consulting the chief U.S. investigator who looked into the disaster, according to testimony before the House Judiciary subcommittee on crime, chaired by Hughes.

A Canadian panel ruled that the plane probably went down due to ice on its wings.
