HOUSTON, Miss. (WTVA) -- Federal investigators are examining the cockpit voice recorder from a plane that crashed at the Houston Municipal Airport last month.

The National Transportation Safety Board says the CVR was removed in a preliminary report released Thursday.

Officials say the King Air was making a landing at the airport with a pilot, co-pilot and three passengers on-board.

The report says a "wind shear" occured and lifted the right wing. 

The pilot says he attempted a go-around, but the plane ran off the left side of the runway.

After turning 360-degrees, the aircraft came to rest in the grass and a fire broke out in the left engine area.

All five people onboard exited the aircraft and report says one suffered minor injuries.

An FAA inspector went to the scene and reports substantial damage to both wings and extensive fire damage to the left engine area.

The report says the pilot reported no mechanical problems and there was no adverse weather reported in the area at the time of the crash.
