NTSB: Investigation into Miami plane crash to take 6 months


MIAMI- New information about a deadly-plane crash in southwest Miami-Dade.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) says it’ll take six months to conduct an investigation.

The twin-engine, Beechcraft 1900 went down Wednesday afternoon and instantly caught fire when it hit the ground.

All four people onboard died.

“Shortly after takeoff, he said he had an engine problem. I don’t know if he was turning back to the runway or just turning. I’d have to look at the radar data to see exactly where and like I said there may be more on the tape, this is what I was told third hand was just an engine problem,” said Bob Grett.

NTSB says the remaining fuselage will be moved to a hangar and investigators hope to release a preliminary report within the next 10 days.
