February 9, 2009 [LAT]: “Authorities have identified two of the three people killed in a plane crash Thursday on Catalina Island. Marshall D. Goldberg, 39, of Florida and Amy Marie Judd, 25 of Ohio, are believed to be the two passengers who died in the plane crash on a remote hilltop area on the western side of the island.”


February 9, 2009 [LAT]: “Authorities have identified two of the three people killed in a plane crash Thursday on Catalina Island. Marshall D. Goldberg, 39, of Florida and Amy Marie Judd, 25, of Idaho, are believed to be the two passengers who died in the plane crash on a remote hilltop area on the western side of the island, the Los Angeles County coroner's office said today. A search-and-rescue team found three burned bodies in a downed plane near Mt. Orizaba on Friday, a day after the aircraft took off in the rain from the island's Airport in the Sky bound for John Wayne Airport. Goldberg and Judd were tourists who had been traveling together and were staying at the Ritz-Carlton resort in Dana Point, said Orange County Sheriff's Department Spokesman Jim Amormino. The third victim, a male, has not officially been identified, but is believed to be the pilot of the small charter plane, Mark Hogland, 48, president of the Dana Point charter flight company SkyBlue USA. Goldberg and Judd were identified by their driver's licenses. Their bodies have not yet been examined. Hogland had a private pilot's license and an instrument rating that qualified him to fly during bad weather, Federal Aviation Administration records show, but he was not licensed to conduct charter flights. Twenty people have died in eight plane crashes coming in or out of Airport in the Sky in the last decade, including the three killed Thursday. Before that wreck, the most recent crash happened a little more than three months ago, when three people were killed in a crash off the end of the runway.”
