(WCBD) – The Berkeley County Coroner confirmed the identities of the two people on board a Cessna that collided in mid-air with an F-16.

Michael Johnson, 68, and his son, Joseph Johnson, 30, were killed when the collision happened just after 11am Tuesday over Lewisfield Plantation. Joseph Johnson was piloting the plane, and last night, his uncle told News2 that he was hoping to become a commercial pilot. The uncle says the two were flying to Myrtle Beach, and then cross-country, to log the training hours Joe needed.

Michael Johnson’s wife also posted on Facebook last night, saying “My beautiful, big-hearted son and his awesome father died today in a plane crash… please keep me in your prayers.”

At a press conference in Moncks Corner on Wednesday, the NTSB joined the Bill Salisbury, Berkeley County Coroner and Chief of Berkeley County Rescue Squad and Berkeley County Sheriff, Duane Lewis. The NTSB said they will be leading the investigation of the crash and are focusing on the accident site of the Cessna on Wednesday and the F-16 accident site on Thursday. The public docket will eventually be released including photos and statements from witnesses and 60 to 90 days after the release of the docket, a summary of what happened will be released.
