Federal investigators say pilot error and poor weather likely caused a 2004 air ambulance helicopter crash that killed three crew members in Choctawhatchee Bay.
The national transportation safety board released its findings this week, 16 months after the night-time crash that killed the pilot, a paramedic and a nurse.
The sacred heart health systems helicopter was returning to base after canceling a call because of bad weather when it went down about 12:45 a.m. on October 20, 2004.
The investigation concluded that the pilot likely became disoriented after flying into low clouds as the craft returned to base.
