DOSWELL, Va. (AP) — The National Transportation Safety Board says it will have a preliminary report on a deadly balloon crash in Virginia in 10 days.
An air safety investigator said Saturday that officials have yet to examine the records of the balloon or the pilot.
Investigator Heidi Moats said once the recovery of the wreckage is complete, the agency will "examine the man, the machine and the environment."
Searchers have recovered the bodies of two of three people who were on the balloon when it drifted into a power line, caught fire and crashed Friday night. They were looking for the balloon and the third occupant on Saturday.
