The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) released its initial findings into the events leading up to an Aviation Accident that claimed the lives of four people earlier this year. According to Arkansas Matters, the incident occurred at around 1:50 p.m. on January 24, just outside of Richwood, Louisiana.
The report indicates the flight of the Beechcraft Bonanza aircraft had originated in Beaumont, Texas, and was destined for the regional airport located in Monroe, Louisiana. Weather was not optimal during the flight and required the pilot to depend on navigational instruments to fly. As the pilot began to approach his landing site, he missed several turns he was instructed to make by air traffic controllers and witnesses reported the plane going down in a wooded area a short time later. The pilot and all three passengers aboard the plane perished in the crash.
No information was released in the report about what contributing factors may have played a part in the plane going down; However, officials did say the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is continuing to examine the events and actions that occurred in the moments leading up to the aviation accident.
The Personal Injury Attorneys at the law firm of Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy have successfully handled aviation accident litigation nationwide and point out the importance of having qualified legal advisers by your side if you have been hurt in an accident involving an airplane.
