Two men from North Carolina were killed in a small plane crash in Kentucky. The report comes from police who believe the crash occurred either late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning in Henderson, Kentucky.

Authorities haven’t been able to identify a possible time because the local airport closes just before midnight. An airport worker discovered the wreckage around 7:40 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

It’s believed that the two men, 47-year-old Barry Hill, and 48-year-old George Tucker, had stolen or used the plane without permission from the registered owner to fly. However, the two were not able to keep the Bellanca 17-30A up and crashed 75-yards off the runway from Henderson City-County Airport.

Police also revealed that neither man was licensed to fly a plane. Kentucky State Police Trooper Corey King revealed that one of the men knew the owner of the plane while the other had only taken a few flight classes. It unknown which men owned the aircraft and who was at the controls at the time of the crash.

“Neither man have or ever had a certified, valid pilot’s license. Right now there are more questions than we have answers,” King told NBC News.

Henderson County Coroner Bruce Farmer believed that both men died on impact.
