SPRINGFIELD, Ohio - Visitations and funeral services have been set for the two pilots killed in the crash of a Wright Brothers-style biplane in western Ohio.

The Dayton Daily News reports the families of 73-year-old Don Gum and 64-year-old Mitchell Cary will receive visitors separately Wednesday evening, and the families scheduled funeral services for Thursday.

The men were members of Wright "B" Flyer Inc., an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization.

Federal investigators say an announcement of what caused the crash last Saturday could take up to eight months.
