LAS VEGAS (AP) — Federal investigators found no readable onboard video amid the debris of a modified racing plane that crashed into a crowd of spectators last month at an air race in Reno, Nev.

The National Transportation Safety Board said Friday that technicians still hope to extract information about the performance of the P-51 Mustang from a memory card.

Damaged aircraft components and memory cards were found amid bits of debris scattered over more than 2 acres following the Sept. 16 crash that killed 11 people, including the Florida pilot, and injured more than 70.

NTSB investigators are looking at evidence that something fell off the World War II-era aircraft as it climbed, rolled and crashed nose-first into spectators at Reno-Stead Airport.

NTSB investigators have hundreds of photos and videos from spectators.
