Pilot Error Possible in Fatal Plane Crash

There's new information about a military plane crash that happened in Savannah a few months ago. The United States Air Force says a crash at the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport that left two pilots dead may have been the result of pilot error.

The report says Captains Judson Brinson and Lee Moore may have been hung over from the night before. The plane had dual controls, so investigators aren't sure which pilot had control of the plane at the time. But they do say the men were in a hurry to return home, and may have also skipped over some preflight steps.
