NTSB releases preliminary report on plane crash that killed 2 people in central Palm Beach County

The National Transportation Safety Board has released its preliminary report on a plane crash that killed two people in Central Palm Beach County on October 13th.

The Piper PA-28-180 plummeted into a mobile home killing pilot Dan Shalloway and Banny Galicia, who was asleep inside the residence.

A witness saw the aircraft flying overhead and watched it make an "S"-turn and then a steep right 180-degree turn before the crash, according to the report. The witness then saw smoke and fire where the airplane went down, the report stated.

An investigator noted that a fire after impact consumed the plane and that no readable cockpit instruments were recovered.

The plane's most recent annual inspection was May 25, 2015.
