MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) — The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the cause of a small plane crash that killed two men in Mount Pleasant.

The Charleston County Coroner’s Office identifies the victims of the Thursday crash as 20-year-old Matt Gaither of Johns Island and 33-year-old Graham Borland of North Charleston, a flight instructor.

Officials say the crash happened about 11:30 on Thursday morning when the plane went down shortly after taking off from the Mount Pleasant Regional Airport. The plane crashed in a swampy area several hundred yards off the end of the runway.
