INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Federal investigators say a private jet bounced off an airport runway several times before it crashed into nearby homes in northern Indiana last month.
The findings are included in a preliminary National Transportation Safety Board report released Friday on the March 17 crash in South Bend.
Former University of Oklahoma quarterback Steve Davis and Tulsa businessman Wes Caves died when the jet they were piloting crashed. Three other people were injured.
The NTSB says the jet was descending to an airport runway when the pilot radioed that he had lost power and hydraulics. He tried to land with only the main landing gear extended.
Witnesses said the plane bounced several times on the runway before it climbed and then crashed into three homes in a nearby neighborhood.
