AKRON, Ohio (CBSMiami) — New details have been released in a deadly Ohio plane crash that killed nine people, including seven from a Boca Raton real estate firm.

The National Transportation Safety Board said a cockpit conversation between the plane’s captain and first officer revealed that they disagreed about wind speed and the rate of the plane’s descent moments before the Execuflight charter went down.

The small jet crashed into an apartment building near an airport in Akron.

The passengers were all employees at Pebb Enterprises.

Toxicology reports indicated no sign of drugs or alcohol was found in the pilots’ systems.

The NTSB’s 1,100 page report did not include analysis on what caused the plane to go down.
