NTSB Releases Report on Small Plane Crash in Colorado Springs

| (Google+)

planeA small plane crash at Colorado Springs Airport, on December 22nd, took the lives of Air Force graduate Martin Anthony Riggan and his wife Nicole. The fatal crash occurred as they were making their second landing attempt.

A preliminary report about the accident has been released by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Barrett Tryon, digital content director for KRDO brings us details from the report:

According to the report, two commercial airliners reported light icing to air traffic controllers. Those reports came around the same time Riggan tried to land, the report said. A thick, freezing fog was present at the time.The preliminary report did not give details on what actually caused the plane to go down. The report said the plane sustained a nearly vertical impact, crashing about 400 feet from the runway. That’s about twice the distance than originally reported.

While there is still no determination of the cause of the crash, so far there is also no evidence of mechanical failure. The full NTSB report is available here, courtesy of KKTV.
