Local News

The FAA has released an initial report on the plane crash Wednesday that killed two people in northern Muscatine County.

It simply states that the “aircraft crashed under unknown circumstances in a field.”

The plane with tail number N2801T was believed to be traveling from Michigan to Missouri when it lost contact with the Quad Cities International Airport.

It happened near the intersection of Iowa Highway 38 and 170th Street — just north of Muscatine.

The fixed-wing, single-engine Piper Cherokee was owned by God Speed Aviation, LLC, and had been in service since March 1972.
