Memorial Service Held for Plane Crash Victim

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- One of the victims of a deadly plane crash involving two small planes in North Collins was remembered Saturday. 

Paul A. Rosiek, 60, of Hamburg, was flying solo when his plane collided with another plane and crashed into a field at about 9:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 25 near School Street, Jennings and Eden Roads. 

Those who knew Rosiek gathered at Lombardo Funeral Home on Saturday. 

A National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) spokesperson said Rosiek's plane was one of six that took off from the Hamburg Airport and were heading to St. Marys, Pa. 

"They would go for Sunday morning breakfast," said Jerry Malachowski, a fellow pilot. "In aviation circles, going to fly to eat is called going to get the $100 hamburger." 

The NTSB is investigating the site of the crash and the agency has said the investigation could last about a year.
