Las Vegas Valley: Small Plane Crash, 2 On Board
A Small Plane Crashed in the Las Vegas Valley Friday Morning
Two people were on board the aircraft according to the Las Vegas Sun, but it is not known if they survived the crash or who was on the aircraft. It has been identified as a single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza.
It landed near the intersection of Pebble Road and Grand Canyon Drive and was on its way to North Las Vegas Airport. It had taken off from Palm Springs and is registered to John W. Jamison from Las Vegas.
The Federal Aviation Administration spokesman told the Sun that the pilot of the plane had told air traffic controllers that he had lost engine power and then the plane went down.
The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the crash, with the NTSB taking the lead. It usually takes NTSB investigators months to come up with a probable cause for accidents.
