The National Transportation Safety Board says a small plane that crashed in September, killing a husband and wife from Georgetown, touched down multiple times on a suburban Chicago runway as it tried to land.

The preliminary report released this week by investigators says surveillance video shows the single-engine plane trying to land at Clow Airport in Bolingbrook.

The plane resumed climbing, turned left then tried to descend again before hitting a tree and light pole.

It eventually crashed into the parking lot about a half mile away, bursting into flames and killing the two people on board.

The plane carrying surgeon Narayan Vengu and his wife Jay was flying to Illinois from the Georgetown-Scott County Airport in Kentucky.

WLS-TV reports investigators are looking into whether the plane ran out of space on the runway.
