The National Transportation Safety Board arrived from Washington Tuesday to conduct its investigation into Sunday’s plane crash that killed two people.
“Processing the scene is our top priority in these first hours,” NTSB PIO Eric Weiss said in an email Tuesday night.
Los Alamos County confirmed Tuesday there were two fatalities but was waiting on the Office of Medical Investigation to release identities and hometowns.
The Los Alamos Monitor found out the tail number from the NTSB and cross checked the information on the FAA website.
 A woman from Harmony, Minn. has confirmed that her fiancé was one of the victims in Sunday’s plane crash. Darla Reynolds said Monday that the man’s name is Mike Fjetland, 51, a prominent Minnesota businessman.
Reynolds told The Los Alamos Monitor that the last text he sent to her was on Sunday morning. It said he was about to take off from the Los Alamos County Airport to fly to Chandler, Ariz.
She said they have a house in Stellar Airpark and she was going to join him later. With Fjetland was his longtime friend and business partner, Kevin Burrs of Corwith, Iowa.
Susan Burrs, Kevin’s wife, later confirmed to the Los Alamos Monitor that crash authorities contacted her earlier about her husband.
