OSHKOSH (WKOW) -- Federal investigators say pilot error is to blame for a plane crash at EAA Airventure two years ago. It injured the owner of a Nascar racing team.
The National Transportation Safety Board said Jack Roush was flying when his plane crashed into a runway and split in two in July of 2010.
Investigators say Roush thought he was going to be in the way of a plane about to take off so he tried to circle the runway, but didn't bring his engine to the proper power level, which caused the aircraft to stall.
Roush spent several weeks in the hospital after the crash. Another passenger had only minor injuries.
