(AP) -- Authorities have identified the pilot whose body was recovered days after his plane crashed into San Francisco Bay following a midair collision with another small plane.
Contra Costa County Sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee said Thursday that an autopsy was underway on the body of 33-year-old David Everett Plumb, of Rocklin, California, to determine his exact cause of death.
Searchers recovered Plumb's body as well as the fuselage of his Cessna 210 on Wednesday afternoon.
The National Transportation Safety Board says the midair collision occurred Sunday afternoon when the pilot of a vintage Hawker Sea Fury TMK 20 pulled up to the left side of the Cessna.
The Sea Fury's pilot said he saw the Cessna going down but did not see it crash.
