SAN JOSE, Calif. – A federal aviation official says a small plane has crashed in the San Jose area, killing both people on board.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said Sunday the single-engine Champion Citabria crashed Saturday for unknown reasons at the 400-foot level of Mt. Hamilton.
The names of the dead were not released.
Gregor says the plane left Watsonville around 9:30 Saturday morning and was headed to a private airstrip in Alta Mesa. It was reported missing that afternoon after it failed to arrive.
Gregor says the FAA and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash.
