NTSB: No Video of Air Race Crash Found on Memory Cards
Press Release from the National Transportation Safety Board:
WASHINGTON - While the investigation into the September 16, 2011 crash of a vintage P-51D Mustang aircraft at the Reno Air Races in Reno, NV remains ongoing, Friday the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) reported that they were unable to retrieve any on-board video from the badly damaged components and memory cards found in the debris field.
A memory card taken from the on-board telemetry unit of the accident aircraft is still being examined to determine if data can be retrieved.
Additional telemetry data that was transmitted from the accident aircraft to the race crew on the ground is also still being examined. Any information recovered from the card, and any telemetry data will be included in the public docket.
NTSB investigators continue to review the dozens of videos and hundreds of photographs provided to them by spectators at the air race.
Additional updates of factual information will be provided as it is developed.
