NTSB: Plane involved in mid-air collision damaged in October
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) says that one of the planes involved in a deadly mid-air collision Monday in Orange County suffered propeller damage back in October and may not have been repaired.
Officials say they are now investigating whether the propeller could have been a factor that caused the two planes to collide over New Hampton, killing pilots William Clark, 53, and Gary Delia, 61.
Safety officials say the wreckage is still being removed from the wooded crash site and will be moved to a storage facility in Delaware, where the crash investigation will continue. They say it's likely to take months.
An autopsy was performed on the pilots today and the results are expected to be released tomorrow.
