News 8 has confirmed that the three passengers were students at Lewiston High School. They were among a group of junior ROTC members on a training trip. The school has not released the students' names.

The other students in the program were bused back to Lewiston early Friday morning, according to the school's principal, Gus LeBlanc.

According to LeBlanc, the students were with 30 other junior ROTC cadets on a weeklong summer leadership program at the Bog Brook training facility in Gilead. He said the orientation flights are part of training and teach the students about flight operations.

LeBlanc told News 8, "I'm deeply saddened. It's a tremendous loss for our community, our school, and the families involved. It's an unspeakable tragedy."
