Police recover two bodies after small plane crashed on mountain

Police on Friday morning recovered two bodies believed to be a pilot and a photographer who were aboard a small plane that crashed into a mountain near the border of Gifu and Nagano prefectures on Thursday, investigators said.
Officers from Gifu and Nagano prefectural police recovered the two bodies around the wreckage of the Cessna plane belonging to Showa Aviation Co., which crashed into Mount Ena in Nakatsugawa on Thursday morning.
Police suspect that the bodies are those of Captain Kengo Nokimoto, 67, of Showa Aviation, and photographer Shinji Tanada, 40, and are trying to identify them.
Mechanic Mitsuru Gotoda, 60, also an employee of Showa Aviation, suffered serious injuries to his whole body but his condition is not life-threatening.
Two inspectors dispatched by the government's Aircraft and Railway Accident Investigation Committee began to examine the aircraft in a bid to determine the cause of the accident.
The plane crashed into the mountain at around 10:30 a.m. on Thursday after its main wing hit a tree near the summit.
