CASA GRANDE, AZ - Pinal County officials have identified two victims killed in a Casa Grande plane crash earlier this week.
The Pinal County Medical Examiner identified them as 65-year-old Del V. Steinbronn of Tucson and 51-year-old Stephen J. Stafford of Green Valley.
The plane crashed around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday as it was landing at the Casa Grande Municipal Airport.
The aircraft was destroyed by fire.
Pinal County officials said Steinbronn was a retired private practice urologist who had many years of flight experience.
Stafford was a certified flight instructor with many years of flying experience, officials said.
Casa Grande Assistant Fire Chief Jim Morgan said the plane went back up about 200 feet when it was landing, and then came right back down before exploding.
