LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas. During a fatal small plane crash last month near Little Rock, “weather conditions changed/worsened during taxi, takeoff and crash,” according to an initial report released Friday by the National Transportation Authority. Security Council.
“A CCTV camera at the 3M plant (near the crash site) showed that the plane crashed into the ground in the lower right position with its nose down,” the agency’s investigation revealed. “The video also showed heavy rain and flying debris near the impact site.”
The twin-engine plane crashed on February 22 a few miles south of Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport, killing five people. According to the report, at the time of the crash at the airport, the wind speed was 19 knots with gusts up to 27 knots.
“As soon as the plane was out of sight, the camera captured an ascending plume of smoke about 1 mile (1.6 km) south of the end of runway 18,” the report said. “Shortly after the plume of smoke appeared, the camera seemed to be shaking in the wind, and it captured flying debris and heavy rain on the ramp where the camera was.”
