NTSB releases preliminary report on Bellevue plane crash


The National Transportation Safety Board has released its preliminary report on a plane crash earlier this month at the YMCA in Bellevue that killed four members of a prominent Kansas family.

The report confirmed what investigators believed happened in the minutes before the fatal crash.

Officials say during the approach, air traffic control informed the pilot that the airplane was about a half mile east of the final approach.

During the second attempt, the airplane veered left and began a descent.

Officials say they didn't receive any distress calls from the pilot prior to the crash.

The crash claimed the lives of cattle farmer Glenn Mull, 60, his wife Elaine, their 40-year-old daughter Amy Harter and 16-year-old granddaughter Samantha Harter

The family was traveling to Nashville to attend a cattlemen's trade show.

No one on the ground was injured.

The plane crashed on YMCA property and closed the facility for several days.
