Speculation abounds into the crash of a twin-engine Beechcraft Baron Saturday that killed three Peachtree City men on a perfectly clear day in Georgia.

Various media reports say the men were allegedly practicing "touch and go" maneuvers at the LaGrange Callaway Airport when something caused the pilot to quickly pull up and then nose dive into the ground. Witnesses say another plane was towing or pushing a glider on an intersecting runway at the time.

According to local law enforcement, the three men were Vincent Rossetti, 60; Willy Lutz, 69; and Jeffery Curtis 53. WSBTV reports two of the men were doctors and all were regulars at the airport.

The FAA and NTSB are still on the scene to determine the cause of Saturday's crash.
