Ky. Executives Survive Plane Crash

Four occupants of a twin-engine propeller plane that crashed into a shopping center parking lot in Chattanooga continue their recovery.

Aboard the plane were three executives of a Kentucky electrical contracting company based in Lexington, Ky.

The three were on their way from Birmingham, Alabama to eastern Kentucky when their plane suddenly crashed on Sept. 19.

It happened 2,000 feet short of the runway at Chattanooga's airport.

A police department spokeswoman says the pilot apparently radioed the tower he was having problems.

Family members say they are unsure if the plane was refueled in Birmingham or there was a leak in the air.

The National Transportation Safety Board was on the scene investigating.

The NTSB will try to determine what really happened in the matter.
