HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Investigators in the Connecticut plane crash that killed four people say they've found no obvious signs there was anything wrong with the plane.

Federal safety investigator Patrick Murray said at a news conference Saturday in New Haven that he would have a preliminary report within 10 days but it would be months before a final determination is made of the cause of Friday's accident.

He said the plane landed upside down at an angle on two East Haven homes as the pilot was apparently turning to land at Tweed New Haven Airport in rainy weather.

Former Microsoft executive, Bill Henningsgaard, and his teenage son are presumed dead, along with two children in one of the homes.
