Two Sequim men killed in a single-engine plane crash north of Sequim Valley Airport on Friday were experienced pilots who were well-respected in the aviation community, the airport president said Saturday.
Carroll "Jeep" Larson, 68, of Sequim was the owner and pilot of the Van's RV8 aircraft that crashed into a muddy field about a half-mile from the west end of the runway.
Robert "Bob" Reandeau Sr., 61, also of Sequim, was a passenger in the two-seat, low-wing experimental aircraft that was built in 2008.
"He was active in the aviation community on all fronts," said Andy Sallee, president of Sequim Valley Airport and a close friend of Reandeau's.
"If you're a pilot in Clallam County, you probably know Bob."
