NASHVILLE, Tenn. - New information has emerged about the Canadian pilot who died after crashing his plane at Nashville International Airport two years ago.

The NTSB has just released its final report on the incident, which said the pilot circled the airport for almost two hours before the plane crashed and burst into flames.

An autopsy showed 45-year-old Michael Callan was legally drunk at the time. He died of multiple blunt force trauma and severe burns.

Callan was headed from Windsor, Ontario to an Island in Lake Erie, but he somehow ended up in Nashville. Authorities said he never contacted air traffic control.
