Weather A Factor in Plane Crash In Castle Rock

Submitted
On October 28th, 2013, a pilot crashed her year-old home-built Glasair plane into power lines near a residential neighborhood. Investigators believe the dense fog and icing conditions might have been a factor in the crash. Ironically, the very thing that caused the crash might have also saved the pilot's life. The crash into the power lines also slowed the airplane down just causing the airplane to fall to the ground with a reduced speed. (www.planecrashes.org) More...
