The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has released its initial findings on the events that led up to an Ohio Airplane Crash that killed a pilot and a stuntwoman at an airshow in Dayton last month.

According to an article from WDTN 2 News, the pair had practiced the routine they were preforming during the June 22 accident at the Dayton International Airport the day before and reported no problems with the routine or aircraft.

Weather was clear the day of the accident and the pair began their routine shortly after 12:30 p.m. The plane completed a left turn and was approaching the crowd from the left in front of spectators. The plane then rolled and suddenly veered toward the ground and made impact. It skidded across the ground for more than 140 feet before coming to a stop. The aircraft then erupted in flames, which engulfed the right wing and front of the plane. Officials say both the pilot and stuntwoman, who was also a certified pilot, were killed as a result of multiple traumas suffered in the crash.

Although the details of the crash were released, NTSB officials stated it could be several more months before the cause of the crash is determined.

The Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy recognize how difficult the loss of a loved one to an unforeseen accident can be. The firm would like to send their deepest condolences to the families of the victims.
