Darijus Pagodinas, a member of the Aero-Pilot association, told BNS one of the victims was his colleague and experienced pilot Viktoras Ramonas.

"Sadly, it’s true. As far as I know, it's Viktoras Ramonas with his Piper PA-30 Twin Comanche and his student," he told BNS.

Police ay the victims are two men born in 1954 and 1989.

The involved American twin-engined cabin monoplane was produced in 1969. It was the same type of plane Ramonas and his colleague Gintautas Staniulis used to repeat the famous transatlantic flight by Steponas Darius and Stasys Girenas in 2003, flying from Kaunas and Chicago and then back.
