NTSB: Ice protection not on when plane crashed into Md. house
News


BALTIMORE (AP) - A federal safety investigation shows the ice protection system was not activated on a business jet that crashed into a Maryland house, killing six people, even though the air temperature was near freezing.

The National Transportation Safety Board on Wednesday opened the public docket into the Dec. 8, 2014, crash in a neighborhood near a small airport near suburban Washington. The crash killed the pilot and his two passengers, along with a woman and her two young sons in the house.

NTSB spokesman Eric Weiss says the 1,100-page report details all of aspects of the investigation into the crash. The next step is an analysis of the facts, and then the finding of probable cause.
