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.
