Safety board investigates crash that killed pilot of plane towing banner

National Transportation Safety Board investigators have begun working to find out what caused a small plane, towing an advertising banner, to crash into a Fort Lauderdale condominium.

The Friday morning crash killed the pilot, who has yet to be identified.

Investigator Tim Monville said the NTSB has talked with the FAA and the owner of the banner-towing company, Aerial Banners Inc., along with several witnesses.

The wreckage of the plane, a Piper PA-25, was removed from the pool deck of the Berkley South condominium, an 18-story condo building at 3015 N. Ocean Blvd.
