A funeral Friday honored a Roswell man killed in a plane crash near Raton a week earlier.
State police say 54-year-old Kelly Hobbs and Shannon Tunnell died during low-flying aerial predator control operations.
Hobbs worked as a pilot, and Tunnell as a USDA wildlife specialist.
The NTSB says the operations focused on controlling the coyote population with help from a ground-based spotter.
Its report indicates no evidence of mechanical malfunction for the plane.
