NTSB Releases Preliminary Report into Fatal Crash

The National Transportation Safety Board has released it's preliminary report, following last week's fatal plane crash in Levelland. 

Flight instructor 64-year-old Dennis Michels of Lubbock and his student, 24-year-old Anad Paul Quadros from India, were killed last Monday. The report indicates that the plane took off, climbed to about two or three hundred feet, before making a sharp 180-degree turn. That's when it lost some altitude before climbing again. It made another sharp turn toward the runway. The left wing dropped and then plunged to the ground.

A final report is expected in the next three to six months.
