WASHINGTON (WTVA) -- The National Transportation Safety Board has released a factual report on a Valentine's Day plane crash in Monroe County.
Gregory Huggins, Jr., 49, was seriously injured when the plane crashed near the Cason community around 7 a.m. February 14, 2012.
The NTSB report says Huggins flight departed Umatilla Municipal Airport in Florida in route to Olive Branch.
The pilot reported he had six hours of fuel to make the four hour flight.
The NTSB report says weather reports showed a possiblity of icing between 3,000 and 10,000 feet the morning of the flight.
Investigators say during the flight, the plane's engine began to run a little rough and Huggins increased the fuel mixture to correct the problem.
The report says he also descended to a lower altitude because of icing conditions.
Around 6:40 a.m., the report says Huggins contacted air traffic control to say he didn't have enough fuel to reach Olive Branch and asked to be redirected to Tupelo Regional Airport.
Investigators say Huggins was unable to maintain altitude and reported the fuel issue again at 6:50 a.m.
At 6:58, Huggins reported he had lost all engine power and air traffic controllers lost contact about 30 seconds later.
The plane was located by a National Guard helicopter after an extensive search.
Authorities say Huggins reached Itawamba 911 by cellphone and remained on the line until he was found.
The NTSB report says Huggins is a certified commercial pilot with 922 hours of total flight experience.
The report says the plane was not certified or equipped to fly into known icing conditions.
