FAA says 2 were aboard plane that crashed in ocean
PISMO BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities now say two people were aboard a plane that crashed in the ocean off of Central California.
The Santa Maria Times (http://bit.ly/1jbGTxW ) says the FAA has confirmed that a pilot and passenger were aboard the single-engine plane that went down about a mile off of Oceano on Tuesday afternoon.
There are no survivors and authorities haven't found the bodies.
The Morrisey 2150 was registered to 63-year-old David Casey of Friday Harbor, Wash. He's believed to have been at the controls when the plane took off from Santa Maria Public Airport a half-hour before the crash.
American Airlines says Casey was a pilot who flew with the company for 34 years.
There's no word on the identity of his passenger.
