Small plane crashes at big airport; no one notices – CNN.com

Authorities struggled to explain how a small plane crashed at an international airport, erupted in fire, but evidently went unnoticed for hours.

The incident occurred early Tuesday in Nashville.

But exactly what time remains a mystery.

The single-engine Cessna registered to the Windsor Flying Club in Ontario, Canada, evidently crashed sometime after 3 a.m. local time, according to the National Transportation Safety Board.

But it wasn’t noticed until well after sunrise when another plane taxiing for take-off saw an engine cover on the edge of runway 2C — the middle of three parallel runways.

Well… this should result in an interesting NTSB report. And a lot of controllers having very uncomfortable interviews with investigators.
