Breaking News? - Mid-Air Collision 5 Miles out over LGB?


#1

Anyone heard anything about this? Just heard about it in a telecon with boyfriend in Long Beach. He heard about it from friend in AZ who is an Air Force Pilot. Anyone have any updates?


#2

Something happened, possibly one of the planes is a 172.

I tried finding the flight here, but the area south of the Long Beach harbor is a confused mess and the altitude readings erratic:

The midair apparently involved a 172 with an instructor and student, and a light twin:

My condolences to the family and friends of those aboard.

Light twin identified as a Cessna 310 in another article, might have only had the pilot on board.

My condolences to the loved ones.
