Authorities on Thursday identified the two people who died in a small plane crash April 30 in the West Valley area.

Kalispell resident Joe Angle, 63, and Hungry Horse resident Kimberly Hebert, 61, died after the single-engine plane went down on property on Church Drive between West Valley Drive and Farm to Market Road.

Hebert was a well-known real estate agent in the Canyon and Columbia Falls.

According to FAA preliminary accident and incident data, the airplane was a deregistered Bearhawk and classified as an experimental aircraft. The registration, which expired in June 2021, listed Angle as the plane owner.

A preliminary report on the crash from the National Transportation Safety Board is expected some time this month.
