No Survivors After Plane Crashes At Santa Monica Airport
A small business jet that is estimated to hold between 7 and 9 passengers made a sudden crash landing shortly after leaving the runway at Santa Monica Airport in California on Sunday, killing everyone on board.
A business jet crashed into a hangar at the Santa Monica Airport on Sunday. No one survived the crash and subsequent fire, but authorities did not immediately determine how many were on board.
The twin-engine Cessna Citation ran off the right side of the runway after landing at 6:20 p.m. Pacific Time, said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor.
The hangar collapsed and was too unstable for firefighters to enter, said Captain John Nevandro of the Santa Monica Fire Department.
“It was an unsurvivable crash,” Nevandro said.
Various models of the Citation jet carry from seven to nine passengers, according to the manufacturer’s website.
Our condolences go out to the families of those that were on board.
