When landing - pilots often get 'tunnel' vision (especially when on solo) as they are solely concentrating on the runway on which they are to land.

Not that it would have necessarily had any implication as to why this plane crashed but 24 seems to be very young for a 1st officer of a plane like a GIV. I suppose he got a lucky (or unlucky) break.
