MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — The Charleston County Coroner’s Office has identified the two people killed in a small plane crash near Mount Pleasant Thursday night.

The victims were identified as Glenn Lamb, 68, of Myrtle Beach, and Michael Gigliobianco, 70, of Myrtle Beach. Both were pronounced dead at the scene from their injuries.

The plane was a 2009 Arion Aircraft Lightning LS-1 fixed-wing single-engine aircraft, according to the FAA registry. The plane became registered to Lamb on March 20, but there is no word on who was flying the plane at the time of the crash.

According to FlightAware, the plane took off from Myrtle Beach International Airport at 8:14 p.m. Thursday and crashed around 8:55 p.m. The wreckage was found Friday. FlightAware records show this was the first time under Lamb’s ownership the plane was flown away from the Myrtle Beach area with an attempt to land at an airport that was not Myrtle Beach International Airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the incident.
