The investigation of a plane crash near Ankeny that killed two Des Moines men last week includes a missing dipstick later found at the airport.
Jim Silliman of the National Transportation Safety Board said oil was significantly depleted in one of the Piper Navajo's two engines when it went down last Tuesday northeast of Des Moines.
