We’re learning more about a small plane crash that happened in Breathitt County last month. Prior to his plane crashing, the 62-year-old pilot, Timothy Pankiewicz, had reported engine trouble. He had flown out of Green Cove Springs, Florida on May 24. He told air traffic controllers that his engine had lost oil pressure and failed. A controller told him of an airport where he could land three miles away, but the man said he couldn’t see it and would attempt to land in a field instead. The NTSB says official findings about the crash will be released at a later time.
