NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) - Federal investigators blame the pilot for the crash of a small plane nearly a year ago in northeast Nebraska. Twenty-six-year-old Dale Butler and 24-year-old Amy Brobst were killed in the April 2013 crash near Norfolk. The National Transportation Safety Board says the accident was caused by Butler's decision to "fly at a low altitude and his subsequent failure to see and avoid power lines."
