BROWNSBORO, Ala. (AP) -- A longtime Madison County pilot and a student have been identified as the victims in a crash that killed two people when an airplane went down at an airport during an event for aviation enthusiasts.
Reports say that George Myers and 17-year-old Chris Schmitt died when a plane went down Sunday at the annual Moontown Fly-In in Madison County.
Myers owned the Moontown Airport at Brownsboro, and the teenager was learning to fly.
Witnesses say a vintage Russian airplane was flying in formation with other aircraft when it went down.
Federal investigators will determine the cause of the crash.
