NTSB Reports Bad Weather Caused Seligman Plane Crash
Federal authorities say a small plane ran into heavy rain and gusty winds before it crashed in a remote area near Seligman last month. The National Transportation Safety Board issued its preliminary report on the September 13th crash of a single-engine Piper PA-46-310p that killed a Texas couple. Investigators say the plane was headed to Henderson, Nevada when it went off the radar near Seligman. TheNTSB report says weather in the area during the timeframe of the accident had moderate to heavy rain. They say the plane made a 270-degree left turn, followed by a steep descending right turn before the flight track data ended.
