Nashville plane crash news is troubling out of Tennessee. The plane crash took place at the Nashville International Airport, but it reportedly wasn't noticed for possibly six hours. According to a report from late Wednesday (Oct. 30), a serious of circumstances led to the accident and the death of a pilot.
The pilot of a Cessna 172R tried to land without getting clearance from the controllers in the tower. He then reportedly tried to navigate through fog before hitting the ground along runway 2C. The wreckage burned, but nobody saw any of it take place, leaving very few answers as to when it even happened.
The National Transportation Safety Board has stated that it took place between 2 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. That window was established because a routine runway check was done at 2 a.m. and then at 8:45 a.m. a taxing aircraft reported debris on the runway. It was then that a team was sent out and the wreckage of the Cessna was discovered.
This Nashville plane crash is an odd one that could lack answers for quite some time. The name of the pilot has not yet been released and the investigation is considered to be ongoing at present.
