A joint funeral service will be held Wednesday at 11 a.m. at Elwood Jr/Sr High School at 1137 North 19th Street in Elwood.

The department says those wanting to make donations can mail them to either of the following locations:

The fire department honored David Wittkamper and Kyle Hibst by escorting their bodies to a funeral home on Tuesday.

Officials say Wittkamper and Hibst were aboard a single-engine Cessna 150 that was attempting to take off when it struck the tail of a Cessna 525 Citation Jet, which had just landed. Both died at the scene.

The first responders both leave behind wives and Hibst was the father of a young boy.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is handling the investigation into the incident.
