TOFINO, B.C. - An Alberta father and his adult son on their way to meet friends were identified Sunday as the victims of a fatal plane crash on Vancouver Island, just minutes from their destination.
The men were found in the wreckage of the small aircraft that went down near Tofino.
A friend identified the men as Jurrie Van Den Berg, 51, and his son Mike, 25, from the town of Picture Butte, just outside of Lethbridge, Alta. Mike was an avid pilot, said Craig Sosick.
They were "both very good guys, hardworking, dedicated, all-around very good businessmen," Sosick said.
