(SEBRING, FL.) - A former Bedford resident and two other people died from injuries after their small plane crashed at the Sebring Airport.

According to a Highlands County Sheriff's report, the plane crashed around 11 a.m. Friday near the airport runway.

The pilot, 56-year-old Dennis Gordon Day of Groveland, Florida and his passenger 44-year-old Jason Redi Spink of Orlanda but formerly of Bedford were participating in the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo. The expo attracts aviation enthusiasts, providing an opportunity to test and fly new experimental aircraft.

WFLA-TV reported that Bill Wilson, a relative of Spinks, said the flight was going smoothly until the aircraft made a right bank. At that point, the plane nose-dived into the runway.

Both men worked for Aero Adventure, a company in Deland, Florida. The two men built, designed and sold planes with the company.

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
