NTSB confirms bird strike caused fatal plane crash
A bird strike had long been the suspected cause of the airplane crash that killed 20-year-old Adam Ostapenko of Duluth and his flight instructor in October 2007.
When found, the twin-engine Piper Seminole's left wing had a large dent and the tail section had another dent. In addition, goose remains were found.
This week the National Transportation Safety Board made it official.
