NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The National Transportation Safety Board says the pilot who died in a Feb. 2 plane crash had just bought a share in the aircraft. The board says the second person who died in the crash was his instructor. A preliminary report released by the board Thursday gave a number of details about the circumstances of the flight but didn't indicate what caused the plane to crash on an island near Hackberry in southwest Louisiana. The sales broker for the plane told the agency that on the day of the crash, the pilot said he had completed a one-hour flight to meet insurance policy requirements.
