NC Marine, woman ID'd after plane crash in Chester Co.

CHESTER, SC (WBTV) -

A North Carolina Marine and a woman from Rhode Island have been identified after they were killed in a plane crash in Chester County.

According to the Chester County Coroner, 24-year-old Ericson Davis and 22-year-old Anisa Rossi were killed when their plane crashed 3.4 miles south of Chester in a wooded area off Highway 72.

Davis is a US Marine and Rossi is from Rhode Island, WBTV has learned.

The wreckage was found on Monday, but investigators say the plane went down several days ago.

Federal Aviation Administration officials say the plane, an AA1 aircraft.  The plane, which officials identified as N8890L, was registered to Warriors to Wings Aero Club.

The flight departed from Wilmington on Friday and was headed to Heaven's Landing Airport in Clayton, Georgia, according to the FAA.

A "concerned party" contacted reported the missing aircraft Sunday and a search began. The plane was found when authorities picked up on its beacon in the area.

Officials have not released a possible cause of the crash.

According to Lt. Hector Alejandro with the United States Marine Corps, Davis was a member of the same 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing based in New River Air Station as Steven Hancock, who was killed after falling out of an Osprey aircraft during exercises last week in Bladen County.

The men were in different squadrons, but part of the same wing.
