The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed Sunday the plane found by Pennsylvania State Police burned in a corn field was the same aircraft that went missing September 2, in Lenox, PA.
The Susquehanna County Coroner’s office has released the names of the two people killed in the crash. Thomas Y. Huf and Elaine Huf died from multiple traumatic injuries and their deaths have been ruled accidental.
According to the FAA, the vintage World War II plane was en route to Wilkes Barre, Pa., from Sandusky, Ohio, with two passengers aboard when it went missing. The pilot did not file a flight plan, so the plane’s departure and arrival points for the day could not be confirmed.
The Cessna T-50 was found burned out, and Investigators from the National Transportation and Safety Board and FAA said the crash site is approximately 10 miles north of Factoryville, a borough in Wyoming County.
