The National Transportation Safety Board’s preliminary report on the tragic plane crash that claimed the lives of 9 people last month, including shows that the plane was “”substantially” overloaded and showed no signs of mechanical difficulty.

The report states, “The total weight of the luggage [and] fuel on board at the time of the accident, plus the weight of the passengers, showed that the total gross weight of the airplane was substantially exceeded.”

Preliminary calculations also indicated that the tail area of the plane was out of balance because of too much weight.
