NTSB: There was no flight plan prior to Granbury crash

GRANBURY -- The National Transportation Safety Board has released preliminary findings of an investigation into a deadly plane crash in Granbury last month. Oklahoma pilot Casey Bussett, 40, and Chad Hughes, 35, of Georgia were killed on Sept. 24 when Bussett's 1987 single-engine plane crashed across the street from Granbury High School. Bussett had just taken off from the Granbury Regional Airport when his plane nose-dived at the end of the runway and crashed into a ball of fire. Several parts of the plane were removed and are being investigated, the NTSB said. It then entered a steep nose-up climb, followed by a sudden roll to the right and a steep nose-down descent," the NTSB said in its report.
