All Victims of East Tennessee Helicopter Crash Identified

(WVLT) - We now have the names of all three men who died in Monday's helicopter crash.

Gary Peters with the Fentress County Coroner's Office confirmed the victims are Trevor Noble, 24, of Nashville, TN, William Mark Shearer, 53, of Albany, KY, and Bobby Gene Curry, 66, of Greensburg, KY.

Trevor Noble, pictured above, was piloting the helicopter that crashed in rural Fentress County on Monday afternoon.

The sheriff of Fentress County said the helicopter got caught in some power lines before catching fire and crashing.

He said high winds may be the cause of the crash.

The Kentucky Herald-Leader reports that Young Oil Corporation chartered the helicopter, but none of the men on board were employees.

Noble is the chief pilot and owner/operator of Fly-N-Dollar, based in Nashville.

The company conducts sightseeing tours, aerial photography, and many other operations.

A family friend says Noble also was in a bluegrass band with some family called "The Nobles."
