A preliminary report from The National Transportation Safety Board outlines the details of the June 24 crash of a Beech A36 single-engine airplane in Charlevoix, Michigan, that seriously injured a 16-year-old University of Michigan basketball recruit and killed his 44-year-old stepmother and 46-year-old father, who was piloting the plane.
Air traffic control and witness information has revealed that just prior to the crash the pilot--based in Fort Wayne, Indiana--notified the Charlevoix Municipal Airport that he was using a GPS and approaching a runway.
"The witnesses observed the airplane break out of the clouds approximately halfway down runway 27 (4,550 feet by 75 feet)," states the NTSB's report. "They heard the airplane's engine increase power and observed the airplane enter a left turn, then a turn back to the right around a water tower located southwest of CVX. The airplane stayed approximately 200 feet AGL during the turn around the airport. The airplane then entered a right downwind leg for runway 27. Witnesses observed the airplane begin a right turn toward runway 27, pitch nose up, and then roll to the left. The airplane impacted the yard of a residence adjacent to the north perimeter of CVX. The airplane came to rest upright, partially within a three stall garage attached to the residence."
The report doesn't assign blame in the crash.
