    " Pilot Alan Purwin was among the dead, according to Steve Gatena, chief executive of Helinet Aviation, which owns the plane.

    The other two passengers were identified as Jimmy Lee Garland and Carlos Berl.

    Cruise, who arrived in Colombia on August 20, recorded scenes there for the film based on the life of Barry Seal, an American pilot, who worked for Pablo Escobar, the drug baron who was killed in Medellin in 1993.

    The crash was the latest in a series of deadly incidents involving film crews."
