The Public Information Officer for the National Transportation Safety Board responded to a request for information this morning from the Los Alamos Daily Post about the single engine plane, which crashed early Sunday near the Los Alamos County Airport.
“(An) Investigator is at the scene looking for perishable evidence such as cellphones and GPS devices and collecting facts and evidence,” Eric Weiss said. “There will be no finding of probable cause during this early phase of the investigation.”
Weiss is in Washington, D.C., where federal government offices are closed today due to a snowstorm. He issued his response by email.
News reports indicate that the single engine plane that went down on DOE property in Los Alamos Canyon was registered to Blackhawk Leasing LLC of Harmony, Minn. Authorities have not yet released the victim’s name(s).
