Cessna Crashes in Los Angeles: A simple aviation accident turns into a sudden mystery.


#1

My Words: While this may seem like a minor incident (even though it killed people on the ground) this accident has spiraled into a sort of mystery with new information blooming every day. A history of reckless flying, a suspended license and a stolen Chicago police badge, what happened on Superbowl Sunday?


This is easily the most covered aviation incident in Southern California in a long time.

I understand that the mods don’t like posts about small local accidents, but I just found this one to be so interesting that I have to share it with the community.

I take it the FAA is looking more into his background? (Also Yorba Linda is in OC, not LA)


#3

Both incidents occurred around 40 years ago. Of course, what he did back then was stupid. But it was 40 years ago. Calling this a „history of reckless flying“ seems a bit exaggerated.

And regarding that badge: He probably bought it of a flea market and told a nice story about it.

We’ll know more when the investigation report will be published.

I also had read his license has been suspended for over 2 years.

More will be reviled soon.

Seems like if you don’t live in So Cal then you think OC is in LA

I’m a resident of Pasadena, California. Yorba Linda is sort of borderline but is more in Orange County. I just say LA since it’s in that vicinity.
