The pilot’s disorientation probably caused the deadly crash of a small airplane trying to land at Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro nearly two years ago, a National Transportation Safety Board investigation found.

The pilot, Marcia Salmons-Keaton, 50, of Wake County, and a passenger, Dr. Thomas Littlejohn, 62, of Winston-Salem, died in the crash. A Hawker Beechcraft BE58 crashed about 5:45 p.m. on March 30, 2011, in an occupied house in the Frazier Woods subdivision in northern High Point. The family in the house escaped unharmed.
