Pilot Wesley Caves, 58, and Davis, 60, died on March 17, 2013, when the plane crashed into houses near the airport in South Bend, Indiana.
Two passengers on the plane, Jim Rodgers and Christopher Evans, both survived the crash. The crash also hurt one person on the ground.
The Beechcraft Premier 1 was a twin-engine business jet registered to a company owned by Caves. The company does business in Tulsa as DigiCut Systems, making window film and paint overlay for autos.
The flight had left Jones Riverside Airport on a business trip and was headed to South Bend Regional Airport.

According to its Final Report on the crash, the National Transportation Safety Board determined the probable cause of this accident as follows:
The private pilot's inadequate response to the dual engine shutdown during cruise descent, including his failure to adhere to procedures, which ultimately resulted in his failure to maintain airplane control during a single-engine go-around. An additional cause was the pilot's decision to allow the unqualified pilot-rated passenger to manipulate the airplane controls, which directly resulted in the inadvertent dual engine shutdown.
