The two men who died when their Cessna crashed on Whidbey Island Wednesday morning have been identified.
The pilot was 78-year-old Carl Dahlman of Seattle, while the co-pilot was 25-year-old Joshua McCormick of Edmonds, according to the Island County Sheriff's Office.
The Cessna 177 reported to the FAA it had lost an engine near Langley Airport just before noon and were going down. A witness then called to report a plane flew over the runway, made a sharp turn and then crashed into the woods just at the end of the airpark.
Deputies arrived to find the plane nose-down in the woods just west of the airfield. Both men inside were pronounced dead at the scene.
The FAA and NTSB will investigate the cause of the crash. The plane was registered to a flying club in the Seattle area, deputies said.
