Two men who died in a plane crash near the Durango-La Plata County Airport on Friday are being identified as Michael Schlarb and John Earley.  They were on board a World War Two-era P-51 Mustang that went down after takeoff.  The wife of one of the men identified them to the “Durango Herald.”  The crash happened just outside airport property.  The cause is still under investigation.  Schlarb was a longtime flight instructor in the Durango area.
