Investigators found no signs of pre-crash failure in the engine, wings, or propellers of a plane that plummeted to earth Monday at a New Hampshire airfield, killing two men, a National Transportation Safety Board spokesman said Tuesday.
David Ingalls, 77, and Bruce Anderson, 62, both of Kingston, N.H., died Monday when the plane Ingalls was flying appeared to stall during takeoff and crashed into a cluster of trees at the Hampton Airfield in North Hampton.
NTSB spokesman Todd Gunther said an airframe specialist would examine the frame of the aircraft on Wednesday for potential problems.
The NTSB will also examine the physiology of the two men on board for any signs of what caused the crash, Gunther said at a Tuesday news conference.
There was no sign of an in-flight fire, which had been previously rumored, Gunther said.
