Key Points:

The grieving parents of Tauranga pilot Aleisha O'Reilly plan to visit the site where their daughter's plane crashed into thick bush.

Steve and Julie O'Reilly are still reeling from the death of the 21-year-old, who was killed when her Cessna 152 went down in the Urewera National Park on Friday.

Her passenger, Mt Maunganui man Chris Slee, 19, survived and remains in Rotorua Hospital with a badly broken finger.

The O'Reillys want to get down to the crash site at some stage to see for themselves where it happened and plan to place a plaque there in their daughter's memory.
