GREENSBURG, Ind. - It could be up a year before a complete report on what caused a plane crash in Decatur County that killed four people is released.
The National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday that the wreckage of the Piper 46 that went down about two miles south of the Greensburg airport Sunday has been moved to a covered area so investigators can examine it closely.
Investigators have determined that the plane had enough fuel and appears to have been working properly at the time of the crash.
The wreckage will be moved to Washington, D.C. for additional investigation that is expected to take six to nine months.
It will likely be another one to three months after the investigation is complete that a cause will be released.
Donald Horan, 46, and his wife, Barbara Horan, 45, along with Steve Butz, 45 and his wife, Denise Butz, 42, were killed in the crash. All four lived in the Greensburg area.
A spokesman for the Horan family said the couples left behind six children.
The plane was registered to Donald Horan, and he was piloting the plane that he had owned since October.
It was foggy and misty in the area at the time of the crash.
Visitation is set for Thursday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at St. Mary's School, and the funeral is Friday at Greensburg High School.
