A Westerville man was one of two Ohio pilots killed when a small aircraft crashed in a wooded area west of St. Louis on Saturday.

George King, 55, of Westerville, and Amanda Youngblood, 35, of Huber Heights, near Dayton, were operating a Beechcraft Baron 58 plane that crashed around 7 p.m. Saturday.

According to officials with the National Transportation Safety Board, which is investigating the crash, the plane had climbed to about 8,000 feet prior to the crash and began a rapid descent.

Air Safety Investigator Mike Folkerts said the speed at which the crash occurred is not typical of crashes. The plane did not have a flight data recorder or cockpit voice recorder on board.

During a media briefing on Monday, a NTSB official told reporters that there was no communication from King or Youngblood after the descent began. The plane struck the ground at high speed, but did not damage any structures in the area.
