Cause of Denver Crash Determined

According to the National Transportation Safety Board, the late John Denver’s fatal plane crash last year was due to a lack of fuel and the singer’s inexperience with the new experimental aircraft. The safety board agreed that Denver departed with too little fuel in one tank, which caused the plane to roll when Denver tried to switch tanks for back-up fuel. The board also determined that the placement of incorrectly marked gears was partially to blame as well.
