ALMA, GA (WTOC) - The victims of the plane crash in East Bacon County have been identified:

  • Waylon Dan Boatright, 38; pilot/owner
  • Angela Brooke Wade, 20
  • Drayden Ashley Sears, 24
  • Logan Tomberlin, 23
  • Ethan Tyree Hampton, 23

FAA and NTSB investigators have begun their investigation into the deadly plane crash near Alma.

The plane went down early Wednesday morning in a remote, wooded area near Highway 32 and Mesquite Road near the Rockingham community.

According to a preliminary investigation, the kit plane had four seats and had five passengers. Three of the passengers were classmates, graduating in the same high school class. A vigil has been planned.

Boatright's wife reported the plane and her husband had been missing since Tuesday, and that is when law enforcement began their search and eventually discovered the downed plane.

WTOC will continue to follow the latest developments in the investigation and update this story with any new details.
