A husband and wife from Sacramento who died in a Thanksgiving Day plane crash have been identified as Larry and Janet Ampulski, both in their 50s.
Their small aircraft dove into the lawn of a house near the Auburn Municipal Airport shortly before noon.
The home was not damaged and no one besides the Ampulskis was hurt.
Larry Ampulski was a photographer and a medical-supply salesman who had been flying for about three years. He had rented the single-engine, four-seat plane that crashed.
His sister described him as an adventurer who loved skiing, hang
gliding and scuba diving.
