WARNER ROBINS, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities say two men were killed in the crash of a single-engine plane in central Georgia Monday evening as they were on their way home from a weekend vacation in Apalachicola.
The Telegraph newspaper in Macon reports that the crash happened Monday night in the Warner Robins area. Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said the bodies were recovered shortly before 9 p.m. Monday.
Authorities said the men, who are believed to be residents of Greenville, S.C., were flying in a Piper PA-32 aircraft.
Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said the plane crashed about one mile northeast of Robins Air Force Base at 6:05 p.m.
Bergen said the flight took off with two people on board from Apalachicola Municipal Airport in Apalachicola, Fla., and was headed for Greenville Downtown Airport in Greenville, S.C.
