Two lives lost in fatal crash
Two people were killed Thursday morning when a Lancair Legacy FG crashed off the east end of Wittman Regional Airport's Runway 27. According to the Winnebago County Coroner's Office, the victims were Roger Bock, 62, of Carnegie, Pennsylvania, and John F. Linden, 56, of Washington, Pennsylvania. The aircraft, N515RB, was registered to Bock, according to FAA registration records.

"Our thoughts and prayers go to the families of those who died in this accident," said EAA President Tom Poberezny. "Anytime we lose members of the aviation family we are saddened. We will remember them as fellow fliers who enjoyed the spirit of aviation."

The NTSB and the FAA are investigating the cause of the crash.
