NTSB report details rainy weather at time of small plane crash in Miss. Sound


PASCAGOULA, Mississippi — The National Transportation Safety Board has issued a preliminary report on the crash of a small airplane in Mississippi Sound late last month.

The report does not point to what caused the plane to drop from the sky. But, WLOX-TV reports ( ), it does give details about the rainy weather that day.

The small plane was classified as an "amateur-built" experimental aircraft. The report also raised a question about the plane's registration: The tail number from the first piece of debris found was not an active registration number. The report said searchers found another piece of debris with a different registration number.

Still missing after the Oct. 26 crash are pilot Ron Gregory and passengers Dexter Brewer and Gerald Miletello.
