NTSB Releases Early Summary about Reno Air Crash


 
 

KEN RITTER, Associated Press | | Friday, September 23, 2011


LAS VEGAS (AP) — Federal investigators are looking at evidence that a piece fell off a modified World War II-era airplane before it crashed into spectators during air races in Reno last week.

Eleven people were killed, including the pilot, and a preliminary National Transportation Safety Board report released Friday says 66 people received serious injuries.

The specific number of injured is included in the short NTSB summary of evidence collected since the Sept. 16 crash during the National Championship Air Races at Reno-Stead Airport.

The report notes that investigators are trying to extract clues about the crash from an onboard data box and camera equipment believed to be from the plane.

Florida pilot Jimmy Leeward was among those killed when his P-51 Mustang fighter crashed nose-first into a section of VIP box seats.
