Plumes of smoke, followed by an explosion of flames were seen at Santa Monica Airport after a plane crash on Sunday, witnesses told KTLA.
The Cessna Citation, which had departed from Hailey, Idaho, went off the right side of a runway and struck a hangar at 6:20 p.m., according to Ian Gregor, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman.
“It was an unsurvivable crash,” said Capt. John Nevandro of the Santa Monica Fire Department.
“We do not have information on the number of people on board or their conditions,” Gregor said.
According to KTLA, the plane was owned by a Malibu company.
