A preliminary report has been issued by the National Transportation Safety Board detailing the plane crash that killed an Alabama couple as they were flying over Santa Rosa Beach. But the initial report doesnt shed any light on what happened.

60-year-old Birmingham Neurosurgeon, Dr. Evan Zeiger, and his 52-year-old wife, Margaret "Peggy" Shook Zeiger, were killed when their vintage WWII airplane crashed about a half mile off the coast of Topsail Hill Reserve State Park on Saturday, March 6th.

It took several days for divers to recover the wreckage as the preliminary report says, bits and pieces were scattered, after sinking 60 feet under.

The plane was just one of the planes operating that Saturday afternoon, out of a five plane formation. The NTSB said this is a preliminary report, which means details are subject to change as the crash investigation continues. Officials are still trying to determine the cause.
