The son of Frankfort Police Chief Darrell and another man were killed Saturday morning in a fiery single-engine plane crash in southeastern Georgia.

The chief's son, Brent Sanders, 20, and pilot Glenn Green Jr, 20, of Screven, GA, were killed when their rented Cessna plane went down at about 7:30 am at the edge of a cotton field near Screven, said Walter Stiner, an sir safety investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board.

It was supposed to have been Green's wedding day, Sanders was to be his best man, Stiner said.

The two men, both stationed at Charleston, SC Air Force base had rented the plane at Jessup Airport a short time before the accident, he said.

The apparently had rented the plane "just to take a ride," Stiner said.

"He (Green) was last seen flying low and doing low level maneuvers over his father's residence (in Screven about five miles away from the airport)," he said.

"He crashed there. The plane came down right at the base of a pine tree at the edge of a cotton field," Stiner said.

The exact cause of the crash is under investigation and no preliminary findings have been released.
