NASHVILLE (AP) - According to a preliminary report, the pilot of a small, private plane that crashed and burned at Nashville International Airport last week had filed a flight plan for a short trip within Canada and was not in touch with air traffic control.

The National Transportation Safety Board says the report is preliminary and could contain errors.

Investigators say the single-engine Cessna 172F could have crashed any time between about 2 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. on Oct. 29. Despite catching fire, the plane went unnoticed until another pilot saw the wreckage while taxiing.

The sole occupant, pilot Michael Callan, was killed.

The plane was registered to the Windsor Flying Club in Ontario, Canada, and a flight plan listed the destination airport as Pelee Island, also in Ontario.
