NTSB Probes TBM Crash in Colorado Reservoir

Five bodies were located in the fuselage of a Socata TBM 700 that crashed into a reservoir 25 miles south of Montrose, Colo., on March 21. The aircraft came to rest upside down in 60 or 70 feet of water and about three feet of silt, according to a crash area spokesperson, who said the aircraft had to be pulled ashore before the victims could be removed. An NTSB source said the pilot reported his aircraft spinning before the crash and that the aircraft’s tail separated before impact.
