The men were killed Saturday when their small plane crashed during take off at Souther Field in Americus.

42-year-old Robert Brian King was the pilot. And 42-year-old Manley Darryl Garrison and 28-year-old Ryan Jones were passengers.

Investigators from the FAA and NTSB have moved the plane's wreckage to a salvage yard in Griffin where it will be examined.
