LINCOLN — Pilot error has been blamed for a small airplane crash a year ago near the Norfolk, Neb., airport in which a University of Nebraska at Omaha student pilot and his passenger were killed.
A final report on the April 27, 2013, accident ruled out any mechanical problems and concluded that it was caused by the pilot's decision “to fly at a low altitude and his subsequent failure to see and avoid power lines.”
