A small airplane built and flown by a Point Pleasant Beach man was traveling at about 164 mph when it crashed into the Shark River estuary last year, according to a federal investigative report.
The pilot, Richard J. Jahns, 45, was killed in the July 5, 2008, crash. His body was recovered two days later, along with parts of the plane.
The plane's speed on impact was among the tidbits of information contained in the factual report released earlier this week by the National Transportation Safety Board.
A year to come up with the factual report?
