The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash of a plane piloted by Pueblo Community College President Mike Davis.
The 54-year-old Davis, who was alone in the Piper PA-24 on a flight to Durango, crashed Thursday in a rugged area that required a four-hour climb to cover the two miles to the crash site near Medano Pass.
Officials said they were unable to bring the victim's body out.
At least three possible reasons are being considered: stormy weather, mechanical problems or pilot error.
