New details about deadly plane crash emerge

MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) – We have shocking new details about the deadly, fiery plane crash that killed three pilots in Mississippi.

Authorities are trying to determine if there was water in the plane's fuel. The NTSB report says dirty water, similar to that left behind after dousing a fire, was found in part of the engine.

However, clear water was found elsewhere in the fuel system.

Water in the fuel could have contributed to the November 13 crash in Jackson.

The investigation is still in progress, and a final report is not due for months.
