LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- FAA investigators spent the day at Seneca Golf Course going through the wreckage of the single engine Cessna plane that crashed on Tuesday night.
The FAA says the pilot, Cody Goodan, was practicing take offs and landings when the plane went down with three others on board. All four victims were recent Butler High graduates.
Goodan had recently been licensed as a pilot. His family was out of town at the time of the crash, but returned and said Cody was out of surgery on Wednesday and had a long road to recovery.
FAA investigators will turn their findings over to the NTSB. A preliminary report on the crash is expected within 10 days, but a full report on what went wrong could take up to 18 months.
