Charleston, W.Va. (Ap) -- The State Division of Health and Human Resources has released the names of the pilot and a passenger who were among six people killed when their twin-engine plane crashed near Tri-State Airport.
Agency spokeswoman Marsha Dadisman says officials believe the pilot was Wieslaw Dobrzanski. The passenger was identified as Kazimierz Adamski.
Dadisman did not have ages or addresses for either man.
The state medical examiner's office is working to identify and notify the next of kin for the other four people on the plane.
The plane struck a power line and crashed in a wooded area Friday near the Ohio and Kentucky state lines. Investigators said the pilot radioed for help because the aircraft was low on fuel.
The president of the Chicago-based American Polish Aero-Club says four of the victims were club members. Chester Wojnicki says the group was flying from northwest Illinois to Clearwater, Fla. He says they planned to stop along the way in West Virginia to look at a plane for sale.
