TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The National Transportation Safety Board issues some preliminary findings of an investigation of a fiery plane crash in Tulsa earlier this month.
Investigators say the pilot of the amateur-built airplane hadn't flown since 2001 and was taking lessons from a flight instructor.
Two people escaped unhurt when the two-seat Glasair Super IIS-FT
crash-landed March 9th at Jones-Riverside Airport.
The NTSB probe revealed that the pilot was going too fast when he landed the plane, which slid off the runway.
The agency says the plane had no mechanical problems, and the flight was uneventful until the accident.
Federal Aviation Administration records indicate that the plane is registered to a Tulsa-based environmental consulting company called White Buffalo Environmental, which couldn't be reached for
