NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- National Transportation Safety Board investigators are looking at a plane crash that killed one person Tuesday in Nashville.
NTSB spokesman Peter Knudson says investigators believe the Cessna 172 single-engine plane crashed at Nashville International Airport sometime in the early-morning hours after 3 a.m. CDT. But the crash apparently wasn't reported until a pilot in another plane saw the wreckage around 9 a.m.
The Transport Canada website shows the plane was last registered to the Windsor Flying Club in Ontario, Canada.
Knudson says investigators haven't had a chance yet to listen to air traffic control tapes.
He says only the pilot was aboard the plane, and it appears the plane burned after the crash.
Other runways remained open at the airport, and operations there weren't affected.
The Federal Aviation Administration is also investigating.
