The National Transportation Safety Board released its initial report this week on a Montana plane crash that killed a 65-year-old pilot. However, the report does not indicate a cause for the accident, as investigations into the accident are still underway.
According to the report and eyewitness testimony, the crash, which occurred near Miles City on May 9th, happened when the plane suddenly fell out of the sky in a cloud of smoke. The 65-year-old man, who had been flying the plane in Wisconsin for thirty days before attempting to return to his home in Montana, died instantly in the crash.
The plane was owned by New Frontier Aviation, and, at this time, it is unclear if the company was somehow at fault in the accident.
