NORTH TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – The National Transportation Safety Board has released the cause of a plane crash that killed one and injured another in August 2016.
The plane crashed into a home on East Rosehill Avenue near Sky King Airport.
The NTSB said the pilot failed to maintain a normal approach path to the runway, which cause the plane to collide with a tree and then the house.
Officials also said the pilot’s lack of recent flight experience was a factor.
Dr. John Trump was piloting the plane at the time. He died in the crash.
Dr. William Patrick O’Neill, the owner of the plane, was seriously injured.
