Lowndes County - A plane crash that killed two Air Force pilots in April was caused by pilot error.

Captains Judson Brinson and Thomas Moore were flying a T-6 Texan 2 when they crashed at the Savannah Hilton-Head International Airport. They were returning to Moody Air Force Base after a training mission.

An accident investigation board says one of the pilots exceeded the maximum allowable bank angle, causing the plane to stall and crash.

They're not sure who was flying the plane.

Both men were instructor pilots in Moody's 39th Flying Training Squadron.
