Plane crash: Proper precautions would have made fueling error 'very difficult,' attorney says

LAS CRUCES >> Numerous safeguards should have been in place to prevent the type of fueling error that preceded last month's fatal crash of a plane leaving the Las Cruces Airport, an attorney said. "If everything was as it should have been, it would have been very difficult," said Mark Pierce, a Texas-based attorney and pilot, talking about the plane receiving the wrong fuel on Aug. 27. A technician filled the twin-engine, propeller-driven plane with jet fuel instead of the required aviation-grade gasoline about half an hour before the evening crash, according to a preliminary report from the National Transportation Safety Board released last week.
