Bodies of man and boy recovered from Offaly plane crash
The pilot, and a seven-year old boy were killed in the incident outside Clonbullogue yesterday afternoon.
Kasper was the son of a club member who was one of 16 parachutists that had jumped from the Cessna Caravan aircraft moments before it crashed at 3pm on Sunday.
Two people were still on board - the pilot and a seven-year-old boy.
The victims had been presumed dead after rescuers confirmed the bodies remained inside the plane until it was dislodged from the ground late on Sunday night.
According to Cllr Fitzpatrick, a Pilatus plane usually used by the parachute club had been sent overseas for an overhaul and the Cessna Caravan was being used in the meantime. He recalled seeing the tail move slightly when it was near the tree line before he heard "a thump" as it collided with the ground.
"I heard a bad roaring and it went straight down like a torpedo", Jimmy Slattery said.
It's understood the crash occurred between Daingean and Edenderry.
