AYDEN, North Carolina (WNCT) – Members of the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Association were scheduled to be at the scene Sunday where a plane crash killed two people on Saturday night in Pitt County.
The unidentified plane crashed at South Oaks Airfield Airport in Winterville around 5:54 p.m. Saturday, local officials said.
The NTSB is the lead agency for the investigation, which is standard procedure when a plane crashes. Pitt County Sheriff’s Office officials and others told 9 On Your Side that they couldn’t comment since the NTSB was leading the investigation.
A Facebook post on Stancill Wild Game Meat Processing page identified the two dead as Alan Stancill and Susan Emory Stancill.
The Facebook post read in part: âAs many longtime customers, friends and family know, Alan stancill & Susan emory stancill were avid enthusiasts of sports pilots, among their many other activities in life. It is with deep sadness we report that on Saturday May 22, 2021 after a successful flight to visit grandchildren, Susan and Alan were involved in an accident when they landed near their home, and this morning awoke in the glory of their heavenly. dad.
âWhile there are no words to truly comfort and lessen the impact of such an unexpected passage, knowing that their final destination was never in question, we hope that one day we will find their smiling faces.
âWithout a doubt, running a business came in a distant second to their only real goal: to ensure that as many as possible could join them in their heavenly home. If their life and work has had an impact on you, it was done for the purpose of showing the true heart of what it means to serve others and to serve Christ.
âDetails of the arrangements will be posted later on this page. Your support and love is appreciated.
