Unclear sectional maps and an inoperable light on top of a wind turbine are two items highlighted in an investigative report into a plane crash that killed four area cattlemen south of Highmore last year.
The National Transportation Safety Board issued a factual report this month listing the details collected during the investigation of the April 27, 2014, crash. The report examines several factors, including the maintenance and condition of the obstruction light at the top of the wind tower involved in the crash. The investigator also reviewed the sectional maps in use at the time of the crash, which depicted a group obstruction, but did not depict a wind farm at the site of the crash.
