The crew members who died when a U.S. Navy training plane crashed in a residential Alabama neighborhood on Friday have been identified.

U.S. Navy Lt. Rhiannon Ross, 30, and 24-year-old U.S. Coast Guard Ensign Morgan Garrett were the two-person crew piloting a U.S. Navy T-6B Texan II trainer aircraft when it crashed in Foley, Alabama.

“Their spirit, friendship, and devotion to their country will not be forgotten,” the Navy said.

Ross was an instructor pilot from Wixom, Michigan, while Garrett, from Weddington, North Carolina, was a student aviator.

The plane had taken off from Naval Air Station Whiting Field, about 30 miles northeast of Pensacola, Florida, on a routine training flight before crashing in Foley.

The plane hit a house and two cars. No civilians were injured in the crash.

It was not immediately clear what caused the crash.
