Two weeks after a deadly plane crash near Caledonia, federal investigators have issued their first official report on the accident.
The NTSB has not determined the cause of the November 1st crash, in which three of the four people on the plane were killed. The report indicates that the right wing of the plane hit the ground first, followed by the right engine and the fuselage. Wreckage of the plane was found about 600 feet from the runway at the Houston County airport, suggesting that the plane was attempting to land at the unmanned airport. No distress calls were received from the pilot. The men aboard the plane were flying from Michigan to a hunting destination in South Dakota.
If you can't wait until Thanksgiving Day to have a holiday dinner, a pre-Thanksgiving feast is being planned in Holmen this year.
The November 26th dinner at the Holmen Legion Hall will be part of the monthly series of 'Holmen's Hope' meals open to the community. Nancy Proctor, the village president, is requesting one specific menu item from village residents...home-baked pies. Proctor says dinner organizers will be ready for about 300 guests. She says having this dinner on a Tuesday night will avoid a conflict with family events, and other community meals in La Crosse and Onalaska.
