Two men died in that crash, Michael Barclay and David Finger. Both experienced pilots. Remarkably, both walked away from a plane crash just a year ago.
The NTSB says it will probably be late tomorrow before they attempt to remove the wreckage of the plane which crashed here about 11:30 Thursday morning.
Bolstered by good weather, they got a good days work in toward their effort to find out what went wrong, taking pictures, combing the debris field by foot and even from the air.

"Right now, we are out on the field, gathering the perishable evidence, the stuff that can vanish in a couple of days, the physical evidence. We'll collect all that, go through it and then we'll go back to our offices and gather paperwork, maintenance, FAA paperwork, and we'll analyze that and so that six months to a year later, we will hopefully have an answer to this accident," say NTSB investigator Michael Huhn.
Once the wreckage is removed, it will be taken to a secure facility, so it will be available for further inspection if needed.
