Storm worked for Pacific Blue Air, a training facility at the airport, and according to NBC News she was wearing a blue Pacific Blue jumpsuit on the flight.

Storm was eliminated by Grant after week three on The Bachelor in 2008, and Shayne Lamas, who was given the final rose by him, spoke exclusively with Radar about her tragic death.

"I'm in shock, Erin was such a kind soul," Lamas told Radar.
