NTSB releases preliminary report on DeKalb County plane crash

The National Transportation Safety Board released its preliminary report of last month’s plane crash into a DeKalb County townhome, killing two people on board.

The report states the plane was at 5,000 feet in the air when it started to experience problems with a device called the “vacuum gauge.”

The plane then fell hundreds of feet before crashing.
