Preliminary report of Fulton plane crash released
FULTON - A National Transportation Safety Board investigator issued a preliminary report Wednesday on the November plane crash in Fulton that seriously injured three men.
It reports emergency responders said one of the pilots told them he lost engine power immediately after takeoff and aborted the attempt. The pilot shut down the opposite engine once he saw the airplane would not be able to stop on the runway.
The two pilots and one passenger, all men from Little Rock, Ark., suffered back injuries in the crash. The flight was supposed to arrive at Memorial Field Airport in Hot Springs, Ark.
The full report is available on the NTSB's website.
