AKRON, Ohio– The National Transportation Safety Board has released video of its on-scene investigation into the deadly plane crash in Akron.
The crash killed nine people, including seven employees of the Florida-based Pebb Enterprises. The Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office, with the help of Mercyhurst University applied forensic science students, is working to identify the victims. The twin-engine jet, which had departed from Wright Brothers Airport in Dayton, was on its first approach into Akron Fulton Airport. It clipped power lines and hit the ground before crashing into an apartment just before 3 p.m. Tuesday, Dihn-Zarr said.
Authorities recovered the cockpit voice recorder and they will begin removing the plane itself on Thursday. Investigator in charge Jim Silliman said the airport did not receive a distress call.
