CASA GRANDE, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The investigation continues into a deadly plane crash that happened in the early afternoon yesterday.

Investigators with the FAA and NTSB arrived earlier this morning at the Casa Grande airport, where the twin-engine Beechcraft King Air crashed while attempting to land. 

The plane is registered out of Tucson.  

Investigators continued to interview and gather information from local pilots who witnessed the crash.

According to witnesses, the plane seemed to be coming in too fast while landing. It immediately burst into flames upon impact. 

The identities of the two men on board have not been released, and the exact cause of the crash is not known at this time, according to investigators.

Authorities are hoping to move the wreckage to a salvage facility in Phoenix today where they will continue their investigation. 

The airport remains closed, and airport officials are not sure when it will reopen.
