(San Diego-AP) -- Two men killed when their plane crashed into California's Volcan Mountain Wilderness Preserve have been identified as student pilots from Idaho and Utah.
The bodies of 20-year-old Bradford Astin Cederblom of Rathdrum, Idaho, and 24-year-old Damon Lott of Leeds, Utah, were discovered with the plane's wreckage just after midnight Monday by the Civil Air Patrol.
The two were students at the Pan Am International Flight Academy and were on their way to Carlsbad's McClellan-Palomar Airport from the school's Phoenix location when air traffic controllers lost contact with them.
The men were completing an equipment training exercise with at least three other planes from the school when the accident occurred.
