"San Fernando IC" LAFD Airplane Crash - February 22, 2016

At just before 2pm on February 22, 2016 the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a reported physical rescue traffic collision at San Fernando and Osborne in Pacoima. While en route the call was updated to a small aircraft down in the roadway. Arriving units found a single engine aircraft down in the roadway at San Fernando and Correnti. Two parked vehicles were apparently struck, tearing a piece of the aircraft's landing gear off. Early reports were that the pilot experienced a wind event causing him to put the aircraft down. Luckily, there were no injuries reported, including the pilot.  ©Craig Duriing/DurlingMedia
