Valley City, ND (WDAY TV) - Pilot error is the likely cause of a plane crash that killed Bob Odegaard. That from the NTSB.

The veteran pilot was practicing for an air show near Valley City last September. The 66-year-old Kindred man's vintage war plane pitched up and rolled to the left during a maneuver. It was inverted.

The roll then stopped and the plane pitched down to the ground. Witnesses say it was only about one thousand feet in the sky.

The NTSB found no signs of mechanical failure.
