The names of the Phoenix plane crash victims that happened on Wednesday November 23, 2011 have been revealed.

Passengers of the small plane who were said to be three children were named as Morgan Perry, 9, Luke Perry, 6, and Logan Perry, 8.

Shawn Perry, father of the three children and also the pilot of the plane went to pick up his children at his ex-wife’s home in Mesa, a suburb of Phoenix, to have his children in Safford, Arizona for Thanksgiving. The other two adults were Russell Hardy his co-pilot and Joseph Hardwick a mechanic, Fox News reported.

“The twin-engine plane was traveling about 200 mph when it slammed into a sheer cliff in the mile-high Superstition Mountains an hour after sundown Wednesday,” authorities said in the reports.

Reports also said that the twin-engine plane is a Rockwell AC-690A and was registered to Ponderosa Aviation Inc. in Safford, which was co-owned by Shawn Perry, the pilot and one of the victims.

All passengers aboard in the plane together with the two pilots and one mechanic did not survive. Meanwhile, Los Angeles Times reported that the body of one child was recovered. Dozens of sheriff’s search and rescue worked Thursday to recover the remains of the other victims.
