PalatkaThe National Transportation Safety Board has released the preliminary report on Palatka plane crash incident that happened on March 21.

According to the report, the pilot was preparing to land when he saw other planes passing by. So he altered the plane’s position in order to provide sufficient space between his and other planes heading to the runway. However, when he finally attempted to go around and screwed the throttle in, the engine stopped working.

The Cessna LC41-550FG was carrying two persons: the 73 year old pilot Richard Carrara and 71 year old Malcolm Clevenstine. Clevenstine died March 22, while the pilot has survived with serious injuries.
