CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) –

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are in the Cleveland area investigating a deadly plane crash.

According to NTSB investigators the plane never got very far off the ground Monday night. In fact, it crashed only about 50 yards off Cuyahoga County Airport property in Richmond Heights.

Four Case Western Reserve University students were killed when the small plane went down.

According to the Ohio State Patrol one of the victims is William Felten of Saginaw, MI. The 20-year-old was piloting the 1999 Cessna model 172R and had his temporary pilot license for a year and regular license for a month.
