NTSB says plane veered off course before crashing in Fulton Co.

EPHRATAH, N.Y. -- The National Transportation Safety Board says the Angel flight that crashed in Fulton County last month took off as planned on May 24th.

An hour later, the plane veered off course and started to lose elevation. NTSB officials are calling it an in-flight "break up," and say the crash left a mile long path of debris in Ephratah.

The pilot and a Utica couple were killed in the crash. Angel flights provide transportation for medical patients in need of care at facilities away from home.
