BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A preliminary report on a fatal plane crash near Boulder’s airport says witnesses told investigators they saw the aircraft make a steep bank to the left before it nose-dived into the ground.

The National Transportation Safety Board report says the Mooney M-20E was nearly vertical when it crashed and burst into flames north of Boulder Municipal Airport on Monday morning.

Steven Moore, executive director of the National Gay Pilots Association, was killed in the crash.

Family and friends told officials Moore was headed to an airport in nearby Broomfield. The Daily Camera reports (https://bit.ly/1wKNPH5 ) a flight plan was not filed.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation by the NTSB and the Federal Aviation Administration.
