We’re learning more details on the fatal Palm Coast airplane crash which left three people dead.
The National Transportation Safety Board has released its preliminary report on the January 4th crash where a plane landed in a home on Utica Path.
The Board says the pilot reported feeling vibrations in the propeller engine during the flight from Saint Lucie County International Airport to Knoxville Downtown Island International Airport. Soon after, he reported zero engine oil pressure and “cool cylinders”. At that time the pilot was cleared to land.
Witness tell the Board the plane’s final approach was unusually low, and about one mile from the approach end of the runway the witnesses lost sight of the plane.
The plan hit a home, spawning a large fire which destroyed most of the airplane and home.
The airplane wreckage is now in a nearby storage facility, and the engine will be examined at the manufacturer’s facility later on.
