Federal reports from the investigation into a deadly corporate plane crash in Pueblo show that the pilot and co-pilot were aware that some ice had formed on one of its wings.
The National Transportation Safety Board released the reports Friday on the February 16th crash which killed the pilots and six passengers. There was no analysis of the information contained in the reports and the agency has not released a possible cause of the crash yet.
According to transcripts of the cockpit voice recorder, one of the pilots of the Cessna Citation C-560 said that a small amount of ice had formed on the leading edge of one of the wings about 20 minutes before it was suppose to land at the Pueblo airport. They did not appear to be worried and talked about using anti-icing equipment.
