Victims of Wisconsin plane crash from Kentucky


BRISTOL, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities have identified the two Kentucky men found dead in a plane crash in southeast Wisconsin over the weekend.

The Kenosha County sheriff's office says 69-year-old William Lester Lanman of Louisville, Kentucky, was the pilot. Lanman was a U.S. Army veteran and a longtime pilot.

The passenger was 43-year-old James Dan Arnold of Crestwood, Kentucky. Authorities say Arnold was a friend of Lanman and was studying to be a pilot.

The men were flying to the Experimental Aircraft Association convention in Oshkosh, about 125 miles to the north, when the small, homebuilt plane crashed in a field. The wreckage was found Sunday.

Federal aviation officials are investigating.
