NTSB Report: Fuel/Air Mixture Concerned Pilots

Posted: Updated:

A preliminary report from the National Transportation Safety Board shows pilots involved in the deadly small plane crash at Lake Tahoe in August expressed concerns about the aircraft's fuel and air mixture at high altitude.

According to the Tahoe Daily Tribune, witnesses say the single-engine plane wasn't producing full power when it crashed shortly after takeoff on August 25th.

All five aboard the plane were killed.

The victims of the crash were all from Fresno.

The report stopped short of listing a cause of the crash.
