The crash occurred Friday afternoon in Alton. Police say no one on the ground was injured.

The two who were killed were the pilot and a passenger. State police identified the victims on Saturday as 46-year-old Jon Couch of Annapolis, Maryland and his mother, 72-year-old Frances G. Couch, also of Annapolis.
