Federal crash investigators are reporting the cause of a twilight sightseeing helicopter crash that killed a pilot and four tourists near Las Vegas in December 2011.
Investigators say a landing gear collapsed on a twin-engine Piper Aerostar airplane that crashed and burned this month at North Las Vegas Airport.
The National Transportation Safety Board has focused on faulty truck brakes as one of the probable causes of a fatal collision with an Amtrak train that left six people dead in northern Nevada.
Federal safety regulators will meet in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 11 to determine the probable cause of an Amtrak crash that killed a semi-truck driver and five passengers on a train he slammed into in Nevada last year.
Federal safety regulators are focusing on loose screws in the tail of World War II-era plane modified to race faster than 500 mph as a likely cause of the crash that killed the pilot and 10 others during air races in Nevadalast year.
Federal investigators are looking at unexpected turns and a sudden climb that a sightseeing helicopter made moments before last week’s deadly crash near Lake Mead.
A Kansas couple celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary were among the five people who died in the crash of a tour helicopter near Lake Mead.
Federal investigators say a scrap of metal found about a mile from the Reno air show crash site may help them piece together what went wrong.
Federal investigators are looking at evidence that a piece fell off a modified World War II-era airplane before it crashed into spectators during air races in Reno last week.
NTSB says it’s “too early” to determine what caused crash; event organizers suspect mechanical problem.
