There's new information about last week's fatal plane crash outside Indianapolis. Investigators say witnesses heard popping noises coming from the plane, just moments before it went down in a neighborhood.

This happened last Friday in Greenwood, Indiana. In a preliminary report just released today, transportation officials say the plane may have also been trailing blue smoke.

The crash killed the pilot and critically injured his co-pilot. No one on the ground was hurt.
