NTSB: Ice Present During Fatal Colo. Plane Crash

January 4, 2011, 4:02 PM

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - Investigators say some pilots had reported light ice buildup on their aircraft when a small civilian plane crashed in Colorado, killing an Air Force bomber pilot from South Dakota and his wife.
 
The National Transportation Safety Administration released a preliminary report Monday on the December 22 crash at Colorado Springs Municipal Airport.  Capt. Martin Anthony Riggan of Little Rock, Arkansas, and Nicole Riggan were killed. Martin Riggan, a B-1B pilot stationed at Ellsworth Air Force Base, was a first lieutenant at the time but was promoted posthumously. 

Investigators say freezing fog covered the airport at the time.  They say damage to the plane was consistent with a nearly vertical crash.

The NTSB hasn't released the cause.

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
The report was released on Monday, not Tuesday.
