Investigators say the victims of a private plane crash in North Carolina were a flight instructor and two former flight attendants learning how to fly. The Edgecombe County Sheriff's Office says 24-year-old Joshua Kevin Burgess of La Habra Heights, California, was the instructor. Federal records show Burgess received his flight instructor's permit exactly one year before the crash.
Irene Michelle Anderson of Mooresville and Elizabeth Marie Kerns of Saint Albans, West Virginia were also killed when the twin-engine Piper plane crashed Sunday in a cow pasture near Battleboro.
Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board loaded the wreckage on a truck yesterday to take it to their regional office in Atlanta for further study. It typically takes several months to determine what caused a plane crash.
