NTSB Issues Preliminary Report on Va. Crash

September 7, 2010

A preliminary investigation into a plane crash last month in Amherst County that killed two men indicates the light-sport aircraft might have had engine trouble.

The National Transportation Safety Board report released Friday doesn't state exactly what caused the plane to spiral into the ground, killing the pilot and a passenger.

The News & Advance of Lynchburg says the NTSB continues to investigate the cause of the crash. The Virginia State Police are also investigating, as is the Federal Aviation Administration.

Killed in the Aug. 22 crash were 77-year-old John Milhous of Amherst and his passenger, 47-year-old Carl J. Weber of Forest.
