Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. - Four people died in a plane crash at Eglin Air Force Base, officials said Thursday afternoon. 

Eglin and Okaloosa County emergency crews responded to the aircraft crash approximately two miles north of the installation’s runway in a densely wooded area on the Eglin Reservation at about 10:30 a.m., officials wrote in a news release.

"Following the initial investigation, officials have confirmed four fatalities," officials wrote. "The original indication was one fatality based on the flight plan documentation filed in Toledo and physical evidence."

The aircraft was a Beechcraft BE-60 that flew out of Toledo, Ohio Thursday morning.

The family was notified by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s office Thursday afternoon.

The pilot was Henry Nowakowki, OCSO officials said. His wife Patsy and her sister Carolyn and Carolyn's husband, Tom Seine were also on board. Family members were waiting for their arrival at the Destin Executive Airport. 

Remains will be turned over to the District One Medical Examiner for Okaloosa County.

The Federal Aviation Administration will conduct an investigation into the cause of the crash.
