Md., Texas men killed in plane crash
Two men from Maryland and Texas have been identified as those killed when a small plane crashed after leaving an airport in western Massachusetts.
Renee Steese, first Northwestern assistant district attorney, said Wednesday the victims were 61-year-old Jack A. Johnson of Ellicott City, and 52-year-old Joseph J. Jaso, Jr. of San Antonio. Federal authorities have said the plane was registered to Johnson.
The single-engine Cessna 172 was headed to Maine when it crashed just after 9 p.m. Tuesday in Orange. Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jim Peters said it had just left Orange Municipal Airport, and went down in a wooded area about a mile to the north.
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
