East Hartford Plane Crash May Be Intentional Act

A statement issued by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) says that the agency's initial investigation indicates the light plane crash in East Hartford, Connecticut, on 12 October 2016, near a Pratt & Whitney plant, is the result of an intentional act.

Here is the full statement issued by the agency:

The National Transportation Safety Board's initial investigation of Tuesday’s aircraft crash in East Hartford, Connecticut, indicates the crash is the result of an intentional act.

In light of that information and in accordance with established procedures the NTSB is in the process of transferring the lead for the investigation from NTSB to the FBI.

The NTSB stands ready to support the FBI’s investigation should a request be made for agency expertise.
