Debris from the crash, including the aircraft's engine and parts of the truck, ended up in the road and a ditch. The majority of the aircraft ended up on top of the truck in the front yard of a house next to the runway.

Sauer said the aircraft was recently inspected, and maintenance records were found at the scene of the crash.

The full investigation is expected to take six months to a year to complete, Sauer said.

Brown County sheriff's Lt. Tom Zeigle said the sheriff's office's investigation will focus on the condition of the truck at the time of the crash in concert with NTSB's examination of the aircraft.
