It took more than 24 hours to locate all victims, she said.
According to Heidi Kemner, an air safety investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board, the jet departed from Atlanta Regional Airport-Falcon Field in Peachtree City about 9:45 a.m. and was headed for Nashville. It was snowing at the time, but it’s unclear if the weather was a factor in the crash.
“We will perform a formal weather study, and that will definitely be something we look into in this investigation,” she said during the news conference.
Investigators were expected to continue documenting the crash site before moving to their office in Washington, D.C. It could be up to 18 months before a factual report is ready, Kemner said.
