OCEAN CITY, Md.- The Ocean City Police Department has announced the funeral arrangements for the two off-duty police officers, 27-year-old Joshua D. Adickes, of Berlin, and 43-year-old Thomas J. Geoghegan Jr., of Ocean City, who were killed in a tragic plane crash late Sunday afternoon.

The small military style plane plunged into the ocean after taking off from the Ocean City Municipal Airport. Witnesses told police the aircraft spun out of control before making a nose-dive crash into the ocean.

Their bodies were recovered Monday, but rough waters and zero visibility forced a delayed Thursday recovery of the plane. 

Here are the arrangements for 27-year-old Adickes, who lived in Berlin:

Monday: Public viewing will be 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. at Cochran's Funeral Home, 905 High St., Hackettstown, N.J.

Tuesday: Services will be at 11 a.m. at Highlands Presbyterian Church, Heath Lane, Schooleys Mountain, N.J., 07870. Burial will follow at Fairmount Cemetery, at routes 512 and 517, Fairmount, N.J.

Then a reception will follow at Schooleys Mountain Fire Company, 231 Schooleys Mountain Road, Schooleys Mountain, N.J.

Here are the arrangements for 43-year-old Geoghegan, who lived in Ocean City:

• Thursday: Viewing from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. at John B. Taylor Funeral Home, 147 Duke of Gloucester St., Annapolis.

• Friday: Services will be at 11 a.m. at Evangelical Presbyterian Church, 710 Ridgely Ave., Annapolis.

Saturday: Another viewing will be at 4 to 6 p.m. at Ocean Pines Community Church, 11227 Race Track Road, Ocean Pines. Services will immediately follow.

Ocean City police said Geoghegan's body will be returned to Annapolis for cremation.

The National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration will continue to investigate and inspect the plane wreckage as part of a year-long investigation into the crash.
