The National Transportation Safety Board says an airplane that crashed at a Wichita airport in 2014 was in the air for only 26 seconds and 120 feet.

The Beechcraft King Air B200 crashed into a FlightSafety building at the Eisenhower National Airport, killing four people.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1ODse9l) the NTSB released its factual report on the crash Friday. The report precedes a ruling on what caused the crash.

The report says pilot Mark Goldstein, one of those who died, radioed that his left engine was malfunctioning before the impact.

The report said investigators found no maintenance record discrepancies that would have affected the plane’s performance. The airplane’s last major scheduled maintenance was completed nine days before the crash.
