AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- It's been one month since a tragic plane crash in Thomson killed five people, and some questions about the crash remain unanswered.

The pilots that were injured in the crash at the Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport did not want their information to be shared with the public, but News 12 got to speak with Chief Pilot Rick Trammell on the phone.

Trammell is in the hospital, though it's not clear if he's at a local medical facility.

Trammell says he's made some progress but still has a long way to go. He says his goal right now is to be able to walk again and that he has lost his memory.
