ANN ARBOR, Mich. - A University of Michigan professor of art and design has died of burns he received in the crash of a seaplane in Florida in which the pilot also died.

The plane crashed Saturday near the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport.

Authorities say 70-year-old John Ardoyno of Hayward was killed in Saturday's crash. Sixty-three-year-old William Shaun Jackson of Ann Arbor was badly burned and died Tuesday.

The Sarasota County Fire Department says the seaplane crashed as Ardoyno tried to take off from the airport. Pearson says the plane failed to gain enough altitude.

Jackson business partner Mark Zadvinskis said Jackson was an avid flier and was considering buying the seaplane to fly from Ann Arbor to his Canadian cottage.
