Simon Moores, a father-of-two, was killed when his plane crashed in Spain
The pilot killed in a plane crash in Spain has been named as Simon Moores, the brother-in-law of celebrity chef Paul Hollywood.
Mr Moores, 62, died when his aircraft came down near Errezil in the north of the country on Wednesday, leaving his family devastated.
Pilot and father-of-two Simon is the brother of Alexandra Hollywood, 54, who recently split from Paul.
The Piper plane took off from Cascais, southern Portugal, and was heading towards Hondarribia airfield in northern Spain when it crashed in misty conditions on the 3,500ft Hernio mountain early on Wednesday afternoon.
Rescuers recovered one body last night before calling off the search in failing light. This morning a second body was found when the search resumed. Sources suggest the two people on board were British.
An audio recording of the crash emerged of Mr Moores changing the plane's route before the aircraft crashed into a Spanish mountain, killing him and a second Briton.
Early indications suggest the aircraft might have had a fault in its altitude equipment meaning the pilot might not have realised how low the plane was.
It comes as a recording emerged of what is thought to have been the pilot's last communication before the crash, in which a change of route was discussed with air traffic control.
Before his death Simon was scathing over Mr Hollywood's split with his sister.
Alexandra was married to the Bake Off star for 19 years, he is now with a 23-year-old barmaid Summer Monteys-Fullam. Mr Moores said the relationship would 'end in tears'.

The alarm was raised when an explosion was heard in the area shortly before 2pm on Wednesday. The plane was flying from southern Portugal to northern Spain when it crashed
Pictures from the scene show foggy skies and the charred remains of the British-registered aircraft 160ft from the summit, high up in the Basque Region mountain range.
Contact is said to have been lost with the plane shortly after 1pm when it was in transit between Bilbao and Hondarribia. A local then raised the alarm after hearing an explosion.
One witness told the Spanish press: 'I heard the noise of the plane, followed by a crash and then everything was silent.'
Mr Moores, a former 'Technology Ambassador' for the British Government and Vice President of the Westminster-based Conservative Science and Technology Forum was a keen flyer.
He regularly updated followers on social media with images both of and from planes.
On the day he died, January 9, he posted stunning images from over Spanish mountains.
The active father-of-two and husband was also a former councillor in Thanet, Kent.
A spokesman for the regional Basque Country police force, known as the Ertzaintza, said both victims 'may be British' but added: 'Identification will involve the experts being 100 per cent certain and that is not the case at present.
'One of the bodies was recovered yesterday afternoon and the other today and they were subsequently transported away from the mountain and taken to the provincial capital San Sebastian for autopsies in the city's Institute of Forensic Medicine.
'Specialists in air accidents are still present at the scene of the crash.
'Authorities here are also in contact with British diplomatic officials since Britain is potentially the country of origin of both the people who died in the accident.'
He added: 'The plane was heading towards San Sebastian airport which is in a coastal resort called Hondarribia which is about 15 miles from the provincial capital and near the border with France.

Emergency crews were forced to abandon their search for the second person on board just after 6pm last night because of a lack of light. The second body was found today
'There were two people aboard the plane who are the two people who were found dead on Mount Hernio.
'It was foggy in the area when the plane crashed so there were visibility problems but the air accident experts will be the ones who will determine what the cause or causes were.'
Rescue teams, including firefighters, descended on the scene and a helicopter was called in - but the efforts of the air team were severely hampered by the foggy weather conditions.
Ground teams eventually reached the wreckage at 3.45pm and found a body within the wreckage.

The crash site has been cordoned off by investigators and rescue teams were due to continue their search this morning.
Although the nationality of the two people on board remains unknown, sources have suggested the two on board the four-seater plane were 'foreign nationals, possibly English'.
A Foreign Office spokesman told MailOnline it was 'seeking further information from the Spanish authorities' following the plane crash.
