INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ News reports say a central Indiana pilot and an Arizona couple are among the four victims of a plane crash in the Bahamas.
The Indianapolis Star reports 59-year-old Anthony Wishart of Fishers was piloting the single-engine Cirrus SR22 that crashed Sunday in waters off Grand Bahama island.
KPHO-TV in Phoenix says the crash also killed Glen and Leslie Steiner of Mesa, Ariz. The Munster Times reported Monday the other victim was Cynthia Mierzwa of Porter County in northwestern Indiana.
Meachelle Wishart, the pilot's sister-in-law, told the Star that he and his wife, Diane, were visiting the Bahamas as part of a trip that also took them to nearby Florida and Hilton Head Island, S.C., where he owned property.
She said Anthony Wishart was had about two decades' experience as a pilot.
