2 Bodies Found in Plane That Crashed Into Atlantic

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Two bodies have been recovered from a single-engine plane that crashed off Florida's Atlantic Coast.

Volusia County Sheriff's spokesman Gary Davidson says divers found the bodies 28-year-old William Bloch and 21-year-old Gustav
Granholm inside the plane's cabin about 10:20 a.m. Friday.

Bloch was a flight instructor with Phoenix East Aviation and Granholm was a student. The two were from Norway but had been living locally.

The plane was flying from Sarasota to Daytona Beach when it
crashed Wednesday, coming to rest in 20 feet of water about 200
yards off the coast.

The Volusia County Medical Examiner's Office will perform autopsies.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
