Robert Golo and Tyrone Calabar Dead Following Las Vegas Plane Crash
Las Vegas, NV (October 31, 2020) – On Thursday, two men, Robert Golo and Tyrone Calabar, lost their lives in a small plane crash near Raven Avenue and Hinson Street.
Apparently, the twin-engine Cessna 310 plane smashed down in a desert lot in a residential area southeast of Decatur Boulevard and Blue Diamond Road.
Fire crews responded to the Las Vegas plane accident scene at 9:40 A.M.
The Federal Aviation Administration Spokeswoman Emma Duncan said the agency believes the plane was on its way to the Gillespie Field Airport in San Diego.
Further, Bruce Langson said the plane crashed into his property at 4005 Raven Avenue where he is building his home. He was in a construction trailer on the property when the plane crashed into an adjacent block wall.
“It was awful, awful,” Langson said. “It sounded like a low-flying helicopter. I could hear the propeller turning over.”
He heard a crash, and the explosion followed. Then, the trailer was splashed with fuel from the plane and started a fire.
He grabbed his computer, got close to the ground, and went out of the trailer before calling 911.
“I ran around and saw it was just totally engulfed in a fireball,” Langson said. “There was nothing I could do personally to assist anyone there. It looked like a movie scene from the worst horror movie you’ve seen.”
Two Fatalities in a Plane Crash
Clark County Fire Department Deputy Fire Chief Warren Whitney said the plane took off from the North Las Vegas Airport after 9:30 A.M. The plane was in the air for about nine minutes before crashing.
Whitney confirmed two people on the plane died in the incident.
Meanwhile, Deputy Fire Chief Thomas Touchstone said the plane crashed into a cinder-block wall on the outskirts of a construction site in the desert lot.
The 1974-model plane caught on fire, it spread to the nearby construction trailer, he said. No bystanders were injured.
Moreover, Airplane registration records identified Robert Golo, of San Diego, California as the registered owner of the plane. Also, a LinkedIn profile lists Robert Golo as president of Air Charter Express, Inc., which is based in San Diego.
As of the meantime, the Clark County coroner’s office has not identified the victims as of Thursday afternoon.
Accidents Can Happen Anytime
Similarly, Anthony Lianzo said he saw the crash while driving through his neighborhood. He described a two-propeller aircraft flying about 100 feet from the ground. He added the plane’s left propeller did not appear to be working.
“I saw the plane basically rear to the right,” Lianzo said. “He was way too low.”
Soon after, he then heard a loud boom and saw a huge ball of flames.
“I think he was trying to find a safe spot to land,” Lianzo said. “It looked like he wasn’t going to make it anywhere.”
Helen Robertson lives on West Pebble Road, near the crash scene.
“My husband saw the smoke and heard the sirens,” Robertson said Thursday morning.
Robertson mentioned she heard sirens and saw police and firefighters flooding the area.
“I’ve always worried about aircraft crashing here,” she added, “I’m just sorry for the people.”
Jessica Basinger said her children, ages 4 and 5, were outside playing while at the Creative Kids of Las Vegas school on Pebble Road when the incident happened.
“They just said it was a big, huge boom,” Basinger said. “And they all got taken inside. Good enough, the teachers took every precaution that they needed.”
Basinger rushed to the school and picked her kids. She said the crash incident so close to the school was rattling.
“I’m very thankful for the teachers,” she said.
Touchstone said they did not evacuate anyone nearby after the crash.
The National Transportation Safety Board is helping the FAA investigate the crash.
