BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (AP) -- The National Transportation Safety Board says a small plane that crashed in September killing two people touched down multiple times on a suburban Chicago runway as it tried to land.
The preliminary report released this week by investigators says surveillance video shows the single-engine plane trying to land at Clow Airport in Bolingbrook. The plane resumed climbing, turned left then tried to descend again before hitting a tree and light pole. It eventually crashed into the parking lot about a half mile away, bursting into flames and killing the two people on board.
The plane carrying a surgeon and his wife was flying to Illinois from Georgetown-Scott County Airport in Kentucky.
WLS-TV reports investigators are looking into whether the plane ran out of space on the runway.
