GREENWOOD — Federal officials from two agencies will spend the coming weeks reviewing a plane’s radar and audio recordings and interviewing a flight instructor and student, trying to understand what caused a plane crash that injured both men.

Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration’s Indianapolis office on Tuesday afternoon started inspecting the scene of the plane crash in a field near the intersection of Combs and County Line roads in Greenwood. They’ve also requested assistance from the National Transportation and Safety Board, Greenwood assistant police chief Matthew Fillenwarth said.

Investigators will determine who was flying the plane at the time of the Tuesday morning crash and where the instructor, Dennis Rumley, 65, of Greenwood, and his student, Brent Abshier, 38, of Indianapolis, were in their flight.
