The couple did not survive the horror crash, which saw smoke billowing out above the surrounding forest for miles.

And it is that forest that images posted on Kelli's Facebook page show the couple walking around, just a few days before the fateful flight.

The couple are seen walking their dog around the Basin Lakes Trail, which takes in the Bighorn National Forest.

The album on Facebook was posted on July 11, and was caption: “Great day in the mountains . . .”

Kelli ended her caption with an emoji wearing sunglasses.

According to local reports, the couple own and operate a golf club in northeastern Georgia.

Friend Hank Didier told KTVQ News: "I'm going to struggle with it, my wife is going to struggle with it for a long time.

"Almost all of their vacations they would fly themselves.

"I traveled to Montana with Charly last year, fishing along the river.

"We fell in love with the vista, the beauty of the area – that really stuck with Charly.

"I would never think twice about flying with Charly, and he was an excellent pilot and took it very seriously."

The couple were trying to fly to Buffalo, around 15 miles away from where they crashed.

Mr Schell had spent around 12 years working in the United States Army as an aviator, mainly flying Apache helicopters – but he had had a pilots licence for "decades", according to local news reports.

They were in a six-seater Cessna 210 Centurion plane when the accident happened.

No police comment has yet been released.
