Investigation board appointed to look into Monday's military plane crash

LEFLORE COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The investigation into Monday's deadly military crash will receive a jump start now that the staff specially trained to analyze every piece of wreckage -- and determine what it means -- has already been chosen by the U.S. Marine Corps.

That team, 2nd Lt. Stephanie Leguizamon said, will have 30 days to review all the information, conduct interviews, perform site surveys in Leflore County and participate in engineering investigations if needed.

The investigative board includes members from the Naval Safety Center and other representatives from the Marines' mishap unit, specially trained to handle these kinds of incidents.

Once Monday's mishap -- the military term used to describe an event or series of events involving a fatality, injury or damage over $2 million -- has been thoroughly researched and analyzed, members of the investigative board will submit the report through the chain of command.

"The Marine Corps rigorously investigates all aviation mishaps to identify the causes, learn from them, and rectify the problems that occurred: as applicable, this includes aircraft software and hardware modifications, updated training, and revisions to publications and regulations," Leguizamon said, adding they are in the early stages of the investigation.

The factors that led to Monday's deadly crash have not yet been determined.
