NTSB report released on deadly helicopter crash near Post

POST, TX (KCBD) - The National Transportation Safety Board released a written report on Wednesday afternoon about the helicopter crash that happened in Post on Sunday.  The crash killed one man and left another in critical condition.

The report states the helicopter owner and potential buyer were taking the chopper for a test flight. It states that no flight plan was filed for the 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 local flight, which is allowed under many circumstances.

The report says it is not clear which man was actually at the controls of the aircraft, being that two sets of controls were installed in the helicopter.

Separate from the NTSB report, officials this week identified the owner as Paul Beach and the other man as Michael Chenoweth. Beach died at the scene and at last check, Chenoweth is in critical condition at University Medical Center.
