Preliminary results released in plane crash that killed 3 Oxford couples

OXFORD, MISS– The National Transportation Safety Board released the preliminary report which reviewed the plane crash that killed six people from Oxford. 

The report, released Thursday, is just the first part of the very detailed investigation that could take months to complete.

The findings showed that Dr. Jason Farese, the pilot,  reported a fuel pump failure and requested to stop at the nearest airport just after 11 o’clock that morning. Just 10 miles short of the Tuscaloosa Regional Airport runway, Farese reported that the airplane lost “the other fuel pump.” The airplane fell just 1,650 feet short of the runway.

The three Oxford couples were returning from a dental convention in Orlando. Dr. Jason Farese and his wife Dr. Lea Farese, Dr. Austin Poole and his wife Angie Poole, and Dr. Michael Perry and his wife Kim Perry were all killed in the crash. Combined, the couples left behind 11 children.

The full report is available here.
