Steve Davis plane crash

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Officials have released more about the plane crash that killed former OU quarter back Steve Davis.

Davis, who led the Sooners back in the 1970s, died last month.

He was on board a small plane flying from Tulsa to South Bend, Indiana.

The NTSB released a preliminary report Friday on the March 17 crash.

Federal investigators said the private jet bounced off an airport runway a number of times before crashing into nearby homes.

The jet was descending to an airport runway when the pilot radioed that he had lost power and hydraulics.

Witnesses said they saw the plane bouncing a number of times before it climbed and then crashed into three homes.
