UPDATE: Bodies Recovered After OC Plane Crash, Plane Next

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - There has been new information released as an update to the plane crash story we've been following since Sunday afternoon. Officials held a press conference Monday around Noon.

Maryland State Police say the bodies of the two people killed in Sunday's small plane crash, have been recovered. The operation will reportedly be suspended at this time due to weather. Officials still have to recover the plane from the water, once it resumes.

The Maryland Transportation Safety Board is investigating, the crash.

Ocean City Police say they will not be releasing information, but unofficial sources do tell us it was two off-duty ocean city police officers killed in the crash.

According to the MTSB a preliminary report is expected to be released in 7 - 10 days, while the full investigation can take up to a year.

Unofficial sources are confirming that two Ocean City Police officers were killed in Sunday's small plane crash. WMDT is expecting to hear from authorities later this morning.

According to reports, the small plane went into the ocean, near 130th Street, around 4:00 PM on Sunday, about 400 yards off shore. Witnesses reportedly told officials that the plane was spinning out control, until it crashed into the ocean.

Maryland State Police were not able to put crews into the waters until around 7:00 AM Monday morning, due to strong ocean currents, and lack of light.

The plane is believed to have been a Nanchang CJ6A, an old World War 2 plane, that took off from Ocean City Airport.

We have crews on the scene, and will continue to bring the latest details as they become available. Stay tuned to WMDT and WMDT.com.

Anyone with pictures, video, and other information about the crash, should e-mail the Berlin Barrack of Maryland State Police at msp.berlin@maryland.gov to aid in the investigation.
