Colorado: An airline pilot, Costas John Sivyllis, 30, and his wife, Lindsey Vogelaar, 33, were travelling back from their Colorado mountain-top wedding when their private plane crashed just four days after they got married.
Their bodies have been recovered from Ingram Basin in the San Juan Mountains, along with their single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza plane.
The duo had been posting regular updates about their wedding for friends and family, including showing off the plane they eventually crashed in.
The aircraft took off from Telleride Airport at 12.45pm, before stopping off to refuel in Oklahoma, as per the San Miguel County Sheriff’s Office.
Helicopter rescue crews informed that the couple were dead before their bodies were found at 6.25pm.
“As many of you know, my beautiful sister, best friend, and the most gorgeous bride passed away yesterday with her handsome, most cheerful, husband in a plane crash”, Ms Vogelaar’s sister, Courtney, wrote on social media.
“They were married for four days, and they loved each other with all of their heart and soul. They loved life and lived it to the fullest”.
“Our hearts are aching more than I can ever explain.”
“Thank you to everyone that has been reaching out, it is a lot to process”, she added further.
The National Transportation Safety Board confirmed for investigating the crash along with The Federal Aviation Authority.
