The B.C. Coroners Service has identified the four victims of a mid-air crash between a glider and a Cessna that happened over Nairn Falls Provincial Park, north of Whistler, at the end of June.
Friends and family had already identified Rudy Lee Rozsypalek, 50, of Pemberton, as the pilot of the glider that went down near the maintenance yard of the Nairn Falls campground.
Today, the B.C. Coroners Service confirmed the identity of his passenger as Mohnish Paul, 21, from Byrsanjitown, Nappur, India. Paul was on a sightseeing tour over the valley with Rozsypalek in the glider, which was based out of Pemberton.
The B.C. Coroners Service also confirmed that the Cessna, which crashed away from the campground across the Green River, was piloted by Terence Edward Gale, 42, of 100 Mile House. His wife, Rita Turnbull, 51, was the passenger.
Police confirmed earlier that the couple's dog, which was with them in the plane, also died in the crash.
The Cessna was en route from 100 Mile House to Vancouver Island when it and the glider collided at around 12:15 p.m. PT.
Both aircraft immediately fell to the earth, and all four people were deceased at the scene, the B.C. Coroners Service said.
The Transportation Safety Board has an open investigation into the collision.
