Two people are dead after a small plane crashed not far from an airport in the Sierra Nevada foothills in Northern California.
A small-engine plane crashed as it was taking off from the San Rafael Airport Saturday afternoon.
A plane made an emergency landing Tuesday evening near Lawrence Livermore Lab.
Two people aboard a small plane were uninjured when the aircraft rolled off the end of a runway while landing at the San Carlos Airport Monday morning, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman said.
The small two-engine plane was headed to McClellan Airfield when its left engine failed. The right engine then failed, forcing the pilot to land the plane in a field located four miles northwest of the airport, said FAA spokesperson Allen Kenitzer.
The pilot of a small plane survived after crashing into mud flats near the eastern end of the Dumbarton Bridge shortly after taking off from the Palo Alto Airport.
