Po­lice say the vic­tims of a small plane crash at a Long Is­land farm were the pilot and his girl­friend. Southold Po­lice Chief Martin Flat­ley said Sun­day that Robert Mark, 66, and Su­san Quagliano, 57, were killed in Satur­day morn­ing’s crash at Harbes Fam­ily Farm in Mat­ti­tuck, N.Y., about 75 miles east of New York City. The Oak­dale cou­ple’s dog sur­vived. The Fed­eral Avi­a­tion Ad­min­is­tra­tion said the sin­gle-en­gine Beechcraft A36 crashed about 9:15 a.m. in a plowed field. Fire­fight­ers said the plane was “fully en­gulfed and burn­ing” when they ar­rived. Mark and Quagliano took off from MacArthur Air­port in Is­lip and were about 15 min­utes into a flight to New Bed­ford, Mass., when Flat­ley said the plane ex­pe­ri­enced “some type of me­chan­i­cal fail­ure.”
