Instagram Model Mariah Coogan Shares Haunting Video Aboard Small Plane Just Before Fiery Crash

Playing Model Posts Video to Instagram Minutes Before Tragic Plane Crash

An Instagram model was among six people who died when a private plane crashed onto an Arizona golf course Monday.

Mariah Sunshine Coogan, 23, called out to a friend, Anand "Happy" Patel, in a haunting video she recorded just before the crash. Patel smiles for the camera as the engine of the Piper PA-24 Comanche fires up.

Coogan was a model who had recently appeared in a teeth-whitening commercial. Others aboard the flight included 22-year-old Helena Lagos and 28-year-old James Perdoza, a VIP host at The Mirage nightclub in Las Vegas, who bought the six-seater plane in February.

A call to air traffic control indicated the flight was a training lesson.

"Are you experiencing any difficulty?" an air traffic control operator can be heard saying.

"Uh, we're good. Just a training lesson (inaudible)," the pilot responded.

But right after the call, the plane crashed. 

Investigators are looking into whether there were too many people onboard and who was piloting the aircraft.

Perdoza did not have a pilot's license.

The group was reportedly headed to Las Vegas.
