NTSB Report Released on Georgia Plane Crash
JASPER COUNTY, GA- A plane crash took place in Georgia earlier this month, according to 11ALIVE.COM. The incident tragically killed a 72-year-old man who was operating the aircraft and was the only person onboard. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has been working to understand what caused the Cessna 172H to come down.*
The NTSB report gives detailed information regarding the damage done to the various parts of the plane after the crash and relays information provided by witnesses who saw and heard the plane come down. Those who watched the plane come down stated that they saw it traveling low in the air and circling before coming down into the trees.
The engine and other parts of the plane recovered from the crash site are now badly damaged, but they appear to have been working properly prior to the crash.
Logs indicate that the plane had first been used in 1967 and logged about 3,806 hours since that time. The aircraft underwent an overhaul in 2018, and the new engine had flown around 448 miles.
The pilot had many hours of flight time but may not to have flown for some time prior to the crash. At the time of his last aviation medical exam in 2013, the pilot had not logged any recent time in the air, but in total, he had 344 hours of flight time.
The Cessna was apparently traveling from Toccoa to Cairo, Georgia. Only the pilot was on the plane when the crash took place.
