Two Hospitalized after Small Plane Crash at Monterey Bay Academy Airport
WATSONVILLE, CA (February 11, 2019) — Two people were seriously hurt after a small plane crashed at Monterey Bay Academy Airport on Saturday, February 9.
According to Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor, the single-engine Bellanca Citabria crashed at about 10:40 a.m. while trying to land at the airport.
Battalion Chief Mike Harris with CalFire’s Santa Cruz unit stated that a female pilot and her male passenger were airlifted to a medical center with serious injuries.
Harris said the plane’s nose and left side sustained damage when it crashed on the runway next to a farm field. Firefighters cut off the right wing so they can extricate the pilot and passenger from the fuselage.
The incident is under the investigation of the National Transportation and Safety Board.
