NTSB Completes Preliminary Investigation Into Mid-Continent Crash

National Transportation Safety Board


The National Transportation Safety Board has completed their preliminary investigation into last month's plane crash at Wichita's Mid-Continent Airport. 

The report included a number of witness accounts, including one who stated the plane’s landing gear was down shortly before impact. Another witness said the plane was only 150 feet above ground when a “left turn was initiated.”

The report says surveillance video was obtained and a cockpit voice recorder was recovered from the wreckage. The NTSB will be reviewing these items as well as the plane itself.
