Investigation into Cause of Plane Crash Ongoing

The investigation continues into what might have caused a plane to crash at Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport. 

The National Transportation Safety Board has a team in Lubbock looking for clues into the cause. The flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder will be taken from the wreckage and sent to a Washington, D.C. laboratory.

The Fed Ex cargo plane was arriving from Fort Worth just after 4:30 Tuesday morning, when it went down about 300 feet short of the runway. The plane was destroyed by the force of the crash, and the resulting fire. However, the two pilots on board suffered only minor injuries.
