Aviation experts from the US have reached the plane crash site to investigate the accident. The FBI has not yet spoken to the survivors of the plane crash, which killed Sen. Ted Stevens, but now they are working and trying to put together evidence to find out how the crash took place.
The pilot of the 1957 De Havilland DHC-3T plane which crashed in the south west of Alaska stated that there had been an occurrence of turbulence of the Lake Nerka, but then the investigators state that they did not find any distress signal made by the plane. Along with Ted Stevens, four other unfortunate people too died in the accident.
The experts say that the plane took of between 2.00 or 3.00 pm and crashed after 15 minutes of flight. It is said the pilot did not submit a flight plan with the Federal Aviation Administration, but he was not required to do so. The crash site is believed to have been 800-850 feet up a hill, some 17 miles from Dilligham.
