Small Planes Collide Near LA

 

LOS ANGELES -The U.S. Coast Guard says three people are believed to have been aboard two small planes that collided just outside Los Angeles Harbor. No survivors have yet been found.

Coast Guard Capt. Jennifer Williams said Friday night that two men ages 61 and 81 were aboard one plane and a 72-year-old woman was aboard the other plane.

The Coast Guard says they have found wreckage including a pilot’s logbook from the Beechcraft plane that was carrying the two men. The plane flown by the woman is missing, and air traffic controllers saw two aircraft apparently run into each other on radar, leading authorities to conclude they must have collided.

Williams says both planes had taken off from the nearby Torrance Airport, and both pilots were experienced.

The weather was clear, and there’s no word on a cause.

The search for wreckage and possible survivors is expected to continue through the night and into Saturday.
