Big Bear Mountain plane crash kills soon to be husband and wife

According to ABC 13, two people identified as Rebecca Raymond and Brian White died Saturday evening when a plane crashed in Big Bear Mountain.

As mentioned in the article, the two lovers rented a one motor engine to fly to Big Bear Mountain on Saturday after they got engaged to be married on Friday.

Authorities were dispatched to the Apple Valley Airport around 10:30 p.m. after a person reported that a flight was over due for landing.

Soon after, the authorities were able to find Rebecca Joan Raymond’s belongings in a car at the airport.

Officials state the search began in areas of the Big Bear and Apple Valley airports.

At approximately 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, a helicopter crew found a single motor engine Cessna 172 in a remote location in Big Bear Mountain.

Authorities identified the two occupants on the plane as Rebecca Joan Raymond, 28, and her soon-to-be husband Brian White in the plane.

Brian White was a pilot in the U.S. Army, according to sources.

Raymond was assigned to Barstow Sheriff’s Station and had been with the department since September 2016.

The FAA and NTSB were contacted and will be assisting the sheriff’s aviation division with the investigation. Further details will be updated as they are available.
