(Stillwater-AP) -- The National Transportation and Safety Board is to release the first public records of its investigation of the Oklahoma State University plane crash next month.

NTSB spokesman Paul Schlamm says a public docket opening will be sometime in mid-May. Schlamm says each team of investigators that looked into the crash is preparing a report for the docket.

Schlamm says he doesn't know when a final report on the probable cause of the crash will be released.

The January 27th crash just east of Denver killed two OSU basketball players and eight others associated with the team.

OSU President James Halligan says the university is waiting for the final report before deciding if changes are needed in travel policies.
