At press time, the NTSB had not issued its preliminary report on the June 2 accident involving Learjet 35 N182K, which crashed in Baker Cove a few hundred yards short
of the runway while trying to land at Groton-New London Airport, Conn. The accident killed the two pilots–Robert Janule and Michael Kiser–but the three passengers escaped with only minor injuries. Weather at the time of the mid-afternoon crash was reported as two miles visibility in mist with broken clouds at 100 feet.
