The National Transportation Safety Board will be on the scene in Connecticut to investigate the crash over the next week, NTSB board member Jennifer Homendy said at a news conference tonight.
The NTSB also plans on issuing a preliminary report on the accident in about 10 days, she said. The NTSB will not provide a probable cause while conducting its investigation, Homendy said.
“We know that the crew circled back to Runway 6 and attempted to land on Runway 6,” she said. “They impacted the instrument landing system stanchions, the plane veered to the right, crossed over a grassy area, crossed over the taxiway and impacted a de-icing facility.”
Homendy also urged the public to contact the NTSB with information, videos and photos that might help with the investigation.
Ten people from the NTSB are in Connecticut, including a drone specialist who will help document the scene, she said.
