Investigators warn: don't jump to conclusions about plane crash

Posted:

BUTTE, MONTANA (NBC) -- Federal investigators warn against jumping to conclusions over the cause of a deadly plane crash.

The small plane went down in a western Montana cemetery Sunday, killing 14 people.

There's been a lot of focus on the weight of the plane, which was outfitted for 10 people.

But it turns out the single-engine aircraft may have had ice on its wings.

The investigation is complicated by the fact that the plane did not have cockpit voice or flight data recorders.
