The victims have been tentatively identified as 71-year-old Hal Cheney and 59-year-old Mary Doucette of Lodi, California; 31-year-old Glenda Cambiaso and 65-year-old Hugo Cambiaso of North Potomac, Maryland; 73-year-old June Kranenburg and 63-year-old Leonard Kranenburg of Medford, Oregon; 63-year-old Margie Apodaca and 70-year-old Raymond Apodaca of Sparks, Nevada; and the pilot, 64-year-old Bryan Krill of Hope, Idaho.

The state medical examiner's office will determine positive identifications.
