2 other victims of North Las Vegas plane crash identified

Updated July 26, 2022 - 10:19 am

The Clark County coroner’s office on Monday identified the two other people killed in an airplane collision at the North Las Vegas airport.

They were Anthony Chiaramonti, 40, of Las Vegas, and Zachary Rainey, 46.

Rainey, of North Las Vegas, was previously described as a student pilot getting flight lessons at the time of the crash.

The men were in a Cessna 172 that crashed with a Piper PA-46 when both single-engine aircraft were mid-air and attempting to land on runways parallel to one another about noon July 17, according to federal authorities.

Donald Stuart Goldberg, 82, and Carol Scanlon, 76, both of Las Vegas, were aboard the Piper, which the man was piloting, the coroner’s office said.

The crash was being probed by the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.

An aviation nonprofit, which conducted an early analysis of aircraft tracking data and air traffic control recordings, indicated that the crash may have been caused by a pilot lining up on the wrong runway.

A previous version of this story misstated Zachary Rainey’s occupation.
