  • California Air Crash

    I just heard that an air attack plane went down somewhere in California killing both the pilot and officer. A believe it was CDF AA410. Very preliminary.

      Sadly, a double LODD

      SPRINGVILLE, Calif. (AP) - A pilot and firefighter were killed
      Wednesday when their California Department of Forestry and Fire
      Protection plane crashed as they worked to battle a blaze in remote
      Tulare County foothills, authorities said.
      The crash of the OV-10 airtactical plane sparked a three-acre
      wildfire near where firefighters battled the other blaze in the
      Mountain Home Demonstration State Forest, about 170 miles north of
      Los Angeles, said CDF spokeswoman Becki Redwine.
      The plane, which was surveilling the fire for ground crews, had
      no communication just before the crash around 10:25 a.m., she said.
      The victims were identified as George Willett, 52, a Hanford
      pilot contracted to help battle the fire, and CDF Battalion Chief
      Robert Paul Stone, 36, of Visalia.
      More than 75 CDF and sheriff's deputies responded to the scene,
      but the rough terrain made it hard to reach the crash, Redwine
      said.
      The original three-acre fire - thought to have been caused by a
      campfire - was fully contained.
      The National Transportation Safety Board was investigating the
      crash.
