Boyne City — The second fatal plane crash in three days in northern Michigan killed the pilot and his passenger, authorities said Monday.

Pilot Kenneth Daniel Yott, 61, of Pontiac and 21-year-old passenger Corbin Dennis Kennedy of Howell were found dead Monday afternoon in the Beechcraft King Air plane in a wooded area in Charlevoix County's Melrose Township, police said.

A plane crashed in Melrose Township, Michigan, Monday, Nov. 15, 2021. Two men were killed.

The Charlevoix County Sheriff's Office says the plane disappeared from radar just before 1:30 p.m. on its way to the Boyne City airport. It wasn't clear what caused the crash. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.

Four people died in a plane crash Saturday on Michigan's Beaver Island west of Mackinaw City. The twin-engine Britten-Norman plane was flying from Charlevoix, the FAA said in a statement. A girl, 11, survived the crash.
