Two Arkansas men have been identified as the victims of a plane crash 10 miles south of Tahlequah, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.

John McCreary, 75, and Albert DeMarco Jr., 85, both of Ozark, Ark., were identified as the men involved in the plane crash. Troopers do not know which man was flying the plane.

The 1946 Ercoupe aircraft took off westbound from Cookson Airport and circled to the left until it was flying north.

Witnesses at the airport said they could hear what appeared to be engine trouble and saw the plane flying above the tree tops before losing sight of it. The plane was found in a wooded area of pasture, troopers said.

McCreary and DeMarco were taken to a Tulsa hospital by medical helicopter.

Their conditions were not available Sunday night.
