Four people who worked for the Oregon Country Fair have been identified as the victims of a weekend crash of a small airplane in Lane County.

     The fair is a three-day music and crafts gathering with roots in the counterculture. The 43rd fair is scheduled for mid-July at Veneta, west of Eugene.

     The plane went down Saturday afternoon shortly after taking off from a private airstrip.

     KVAL-TV reports the Lane County sheriff's office released the names of the victims Monday.

     Two were from Eugene: 41-year-old Jerome Roch Delbosc D'Auzon and 27-year-old Erin Thomas Frank Noble.

     Two were from Junction City: 40-year-old Robyn Leigh Weir and 37-year-old Christopher Robin Kent.

     Officials haven't said what caused the crash. A federal agency investigation could take months.
