NTSB Report On Micron CEO Crash Due Later This Week
An NTSB report on the plane crash that killed Micron CEO Steve Appleton is due out sometime this week. The 52 year old was killed after his experimental plane crashed at 8:56 a.m. in between two runways at the boise airport. He was the only person on-board. During a press conference NTSB officials said witnesses say the accident happened in what appeared to be a blink of an eye.
On Saturday, Micron named president and chief operating officer Mark Durcan as the company's chief executive officer. Durcan is the second ranking executive at the memory chip maker. Last week, he announced his intention to step down in August. Meanwhile officials say they are still gathering evidence in the crash.
Appleton is survived by his wife, Dalynn, and four children — 10-year-old Anabella, her younger brother Jake and two older daughters from a previous relationship.
