Shortly after leaving the runway at ..., 9 Nov 2015 [cached]
Shortly after leaving the runway at the Colorado Springs Airport, the pilot reported a loss of engine power just before the plane went down, said Jennifer Rodi, a senior air safety investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board.
"Witnesses are describing the plane as spiraling or spinning toward the ground," she said late Monday afternoon.
There was an explosion after the impact, Rodi said, and a fire erupted, destroying most of the plane and burning one-half of a mile of the surrounding open field.
Thirty-five Colorado Springs Fire Department personnel responded to the scene, the Fire Department reported. Rodi said it has not been determined if the pilot and passenger died as a result of the crash or the fire.
The destination of the civilian aircraft was not known.
The Cirrus SR22 single-engine, low-wing airplane was equipped with a parachute, but it was not deployed, Rodi said. It's possible the plane would have had to be 1,000 feet above ground before the parachute would work, she added.
Weather conditions were "fairly good," she said, although there was a breeze.
"What role that may or may not have played will be a portion of our investigation," she said.
NTSB and FAA investigators from around the nation arrived at the scene midafternoon Monday and will conduct the bulk of the investigation Tuesday, she said.
Aviation experts will examine "man, machine and environment," Rodi said. Investigators will document the wreckage, including the engine, and look for mechanical problems. What role the temperature, dew points and winds may have played in affecting the performance at the time of takeoff also will be studied, she said.
The bodies were being removed from the site late Monday afternoon, and an autopsy, including a toxicology report, will be done on the pilot, which Rodi said is routine in a crash. The pilot's training and experience with such an airplane also will figure into the work.
An initial report could be released Friday or next Monday, Rodi said.

Jennifer Rodi, Senior Air Safety Investigator for NTSB, said her team recovered the wreckage from the scene late Sunday.
"The helicopter was basically destroyed by impact forces," she said. "We're still looking into the weather, and those conditions will be released in our final report."
Rodi, who has worked as an investigator with NTSB for 13 years, said she has previously investigated other Airbus helicopter crashes, but this is the first she had investigated of this particular make and model - the AS350 B3e.
The downed bird is the same model of one recently purchased for the St. Anthony Summit Medical Center in October of 2014 - touted as a faster, more powerful helicopter suited for high-altitude flying.
Rodi said representatives from the operator, Air Methods, the airframe manufacturer, Airbus, the agent manufacturer, TurboMecha, and the Federal Aviation Administration will also participate in the investigation, which will last at least 10 months.

Following the demonstration, Jennifer Rodi of the NTSB gave a presentation on the safety risks associated with UAVs, as well as what UAV accidents the agency has the power to investigate. According to Rodi, the NTSB only has the power to investigate UAS accidents when the UAS is 300 pounds and over, or involved in a very specific circumstances.

It will be months until a cause is ruled in the fatal crash, said NTSB senior investigator Jennifer Rodi, who explained her team is sifting through data, interviewing witnesses and awaiting lab tests that will help determine what caused the Cessna 404 plane to crash shortly after takeoff. However, she said, three incidents in as many weeks isn't typical.
"It may raise red flags," she said.
