CONCORD (CBS SF) — The pilot of a small plane was killed Monday when it crashed at the former Concord Naval Weapons Station Monday morning.
Contra Costa County Fire Protection District Marshal Robert Marshall said federal firefighters at the military base called the county coroner’s office about a fatality related to the crash. No other information about the victim was immediately available.
The district said the crash was located on federal property at the Military Ocean Terminal Concord (MOTCO).
Ian Gregor, spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said a single-engine Cessna 152 with one person aboard departed from nearby Buchanan Field in Concord and crashed under unknown circumstances. Gregor initially said two people were on board but later clarified that only one person was on the plane.
No other information about the victim was immediately available.
Gregor said the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board would investigate.
