HUNTSVILLE, Texas – A father and son are dead after a plane crash at the Huntsville Municipal Airport Wednesday, officials said.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the crash happened on the south-end runway of the airport at around 12:10 p.m., which is located at 1000 Airport Drive.

FlightAware data shows the single-engine Cessna 150 took off from Conroe-North Houston Regional Airport at 10:28 a.m. on Wednesday, flying north to the Huntsville airport.

The pilot was practicing landings and takeoffs, the FAA wrote in a statement. FlightAware data for the plane stopped at 11:47 a.m., an hour and 19 minutes into the flight.

Huntsville Police Department and EMS responded to the scene. The plane wreckage wasn’t far from the runway and debris could be seen strewn across the airfield.

The Texas Department of Public Safety identified the victims as Ethan Cole Bishop, 20, and Elijah Nelson Bishop, 43. They said Ethan Bishop was the pilot while Elijah Bishop was the co-pilot.

According to officials, they were the only two people on the plane. One of the men died at the scene and the other died on the way to the hospital, DPS said.

The cause of the crash has not been determined.

FAA investigators arrived at the scene on Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board are expected to be in Huntsville tomorrow, according to DPS.

Data from FlightAware shows the plane had a similar flight pattern on Tuesday and two similar flight patterns last week, but it’s unclear if those flights involved the same individuals.
