Taylor Nicole Stone, 24, William Lewis Lindsey, 79, and one other person killed in plane crash at West Georgia Regional Airport in Mount Zion, Georgia
Carroll County Fire Chief Scott Blue says a pilot who saw the crash from the air told authorities it appeared that both planes were attempting to land simultaneously "and one came on top of the other." However, Blue said investigators have not confirmed those details.
Capt. Jeff Richards with the Carroll County Sheriff's Office identified two of those who died Wednesday in the crash at West Georgia Regional Airport as: 24-year-old Taylor Nicole Stone of East Ridge, Tennessee, and 79-year-old William Lewis Lindsey of College Park.
Taylor Stone, a native of East Ridge, Tennessee, worked for Falcon Aviation Academy in Newnan. She had a 20-year-old student-pilot in the plane with her. Authorities have not identified him, saying only that he was in the country on a visa.
That wreckage remained Thursday at the site of the deadly crash, but is expected to be removed from the West Georgia Regional Airport later in the day. Witnesses believe both single-engine planes were attempting to land at the time of crash late Wednesday morning.
