Authorities Identify Victims of Va. Plane Crash

August 31, 2010

Authorities have identified two men who died when a light-sport aircraft crashed in Amherst County on August 21.

Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller says authorities were waiting to release the names until the identities were confirmed by the medical examiner's office in Roanoke.

Seventy-seven-year-old John Milhous of Amherst was piloting the 2010 North Wing Scout XC when it crashed on Aug. 21 off Christian Springs Road. Milhous and a passenger, 47-year-old Carl J. Weber of Forest, died at the scene.

The single-engine plane resembles a hang glider with a two-person carriage underneath its wings. The investigation of the crash is continuing.
