The names of three residents of Red Lake, Ont., killed in a plane crash Sunday evening have been made public.

The twin-engine Metro Fairchild turboprop crashed after declaring an emergency on approach to the airport.
Two pilots, Peter Traczuk, 34, a father of three, and Aniruddh Sawant, 25, both residents of Winnipeg, also died in the crash.
Sawant was originally from Mississauga, Ont.
Two passengers from Winnipeg who were seated in the rear of the 19-seat plane, survived the crash. According to the Ontario Provincial Police, a 29-year-old man pulled a 50-year-old woman to safety before flames engulfed the aircraft. Their names have not been released.
The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority said Tuesday the survivors were transported from Red Lake to a Winnipeg hospital and are listed in stable condition.
