LA VERNE, Calif. (KGTV and AP) - For the second time in two days there has been a fatal crash of a small airplane at an airfield in eastern Los Angeles County.
The La Verne Police Department says the latest plane crash occurred around 11:50 a.m. Monday at Brackett Field Airport.
Police say the sole occupant of the aircraft was pronounced dead at the scene.
Initial reports state that the plane may have struck a tree, the FAA told KABC. A witness, Francisco Juarez, told the station he saw the plane as it crashed, and said the plane did not hit a tree.
A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman says the aircraft is a Beech Bonanza.
On Sunday, a small plane crashed near the same airfield, killing one occupant and seriously injuring another.
