Airplane Crash (audio only) in Yorba Linda, California: Five Killed

What happened? NTSB says tail and wings broke off plane before 'unusual' California crash

Authorities on Monday picked up plane wreckage strewn across four blocks following an "unusual" crash that killed five people on Sunday in a Southern California neighborhood. Witnesses told National Transportation Safety Board investigators the small plane came out of a cloud in one piece before its tail and wings broke off, a spokesperson said at a Monday press conference. The Cessna already began burning before it hit a Yorba Linda house, setting it ablaze. Orange County officials identified the deceased pilot as Antonio Pastini, 75, a retired Chicago police officer. NTSB is investigating his medical history, flight experience, maintenance reports, as well as whether weather such as lightning affected the crash. Pastini left the nearby Fullerton Municipal Airport at about 1:35 p.m., NTSB said, and flew about 10 miles before his plane began a rapid descent. Authorities said they do not know where the commercial pilot was going or his speed. Four people inside the house died in the resulting fire, NTSB said. The coroner's office is using DNA to identify the two women and two men before notifying their families. Source

An All Nippon Airways plane from western Japan bound for Tokyo’s Haneda Airport had to turn back to Fukuoka Airport for an emergency landing. Fukuoka Airport officials say crew on board the Boeing 767 reported engine trouble shortly after 9:50 a.m. Thursday Japan time.

Transport ministry officials say no injuries have been reported among the 270 passengers and eight crew members on board. All Nippon Airways says the aircraft’s cockpit indicators showed a temperature surge in the right engine, as the plane was ascending after takeoff. The pilots shut down the engine and headed back to Fukuoka.
