The plane, which was on fire, crashed in an open ravine, but managed to avoid a nearby school,homes and a strip mall. In doing so, this private pilot managed to avoid crashing in to the public, unlike what happened when a Navy Jet crashed into a neighborhood in University City on December 8,2008, killing the unsuspecting mother, Young Mi Yoon, 36; her daughters, 15-month-old Grace and 7-week-old Rachel; and Yoon’s 60-year-old mother, Seokim Kim.(SOURCE)
The twin-engine plane had just taken off from the Oceanside airport when it experienced some kind of problem and crashed about one-third of a mile away, said Michael Drake, a spokesman with county Public Works Department.
The accident happened near State Route 76 and North El Camino Real in Oceanside and was reported shortly before 11 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
The firefighters had the blaze under control within 20 minutes of the crash, and no structures were involved.
It is unfortunate the pilot had to die, but his family should know that what he did to not involve anyone else on the ground, was heroic.
