The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office has identified the victims in last night’s plane crash.

Merritt Island residents Jon Brian Kish, 47, and Kenneth Allen Marks, 64, were the occupants of the Liberty XL-2, single engine plane.

Kish was the president of the Merritt Island Flying Club, located at the Merritt Island Airport.

According to the club’s website, the club was started to promote aircraft ownership, currency and give aviators the chance to fly different aircraft while staying current.

The club has a Piper Aztec in addition to the Liberty XL2 that crashed.

 

According to BCSO Major Tod Goodyear, the plane took off from the Merritt Island Airport yesterday evening for a test flight as Marks was interested in purchasing the plane from Kish.

The cause of the crash is not known at this time and is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.

The Liberty XL-2 aircraft went down in a residential area of Merritt Island in the 500 block of Paula Avenue, near Margaret Street.
