Investigators are looking into how a plane owned by a Windsor company crashed in Tennessee and nobody noticed for hours.

Michael Callan 45-year-old from Windsor died following the crash of a 4-seater Cessna Sky Hawk 172R that was operated by the Windsor Flying Club, according to newschannel5.com.

The crash apparently took place around 3am but the wreckage wasn’t discovered until nearly 9am.

The NTSB’s investigator in charge of the accident, Jay Neylon, says the plane was headed for Pelee Island Airport.

Neylon says investigators are trying to determine if the plane had made any contact with the control tower in Nashville.

Investigators are looking at why the crash wasn’t immediately noticed and is looking at a seven hour window during which the plane’s wreckage was not discovered.

The NTSB’s Peter Knudson says the wreckage was discovered by another pilot, just before 9am Tuesday.

Neylon says the NTSB plans to issue more details within ten days.
