Few Details in Accident That Fatally Injured Four Gulfstream
The NTSB investigator in charge of the probe into Saturday's
accident involving one of the G650 test aircraft gave an initial
report Monday at the Roswell Airport where the accident
Tom Latson said that the investigators have found a wingtip
scrape about 5,000 feet from the end of the runway. The plane came
to rest about 3,000 feet from that spot.
Television station WSAV reports that Latson said witnesses
indicated that the aircraft was engulfed in flames as it skidded
across the ground. It finally came to rest about 200 feet from the
base of the Roswell Airport control tower. Firefighters reportedly
worked over 15 minutes to bring the fire under control.
Latson said this would be the final official release of
information until the preliminary report is made public, which must
be within 10 business days of the accident.
