crashed in northern Kentucky, killing another man, has been
identified.
The Cincinnati Enquirer says the pilot, who suffered burns over
much of his body, was Rod Tarter.
Meanwhile, a relative says the 22-year-old man who was killed
was attending a rehearsal dinner for his brother's wedding when he
was took a ride in the plane. He was identified as Evan Ryan of
