BALMORHEA - We're learning more about what happened in a plane crash at Lake Balmorhea earlier this year that killed the man on board.

The National Transportation Safety Board says they aren't exactly sure where the plane was headed, but it was spotted flying west at a low altitude and a slow speed.

The pilot made a left-hand turn toward the north.

That's when witnesses saw the plane drop into the lake.

At this point, most of the pieces left of the airplane have been recovered and examined.
