Federal investigators say a maneuver performed by the pilot of a small plane caused a crash that killed all five people aboard in New Jersey.

The 2010 crash at Monmouth Executive Airport in Wall Township killed three Polish tourists as well as the pilot and another man. Witnesses described seeing the plane fly past the airport at high speed and low altitude, then climb steeply. A mechanic later told The Associated Press that he had warned one of the pilots about executing the maneuver in the Cessna.

A National Transportation Safety Board report released Friday concludes the pilot failed to adhere to the plane’s operating limitations, causing an overload failure of the right wing.

It’s not known which of the two certified pilots aboard was flying the plane.
