Dad called me this morning and said he’d witnessed a plane crash at about 430 this morning… Our house is on the extended centerline a few miles north of rw 15/33, KMCB, and planes fly over all the time landing on 15… He woke up to funny-sounding engines and got to the window in time to here a “thud” and see the fireball reflected off the low clouds.
i immediately opened up flightaware to see if there were any planes that had filed to KMCB and saw that a cessna 310, N100TK was supposed to land at the time dad said he heard and saw it. Eventually found that it landed in a forest about a quarter mile from our house, and only a few hundred feet from other houses. No injuries or damage on the ground with the exception of some power lines, all 3 on the plane perished.
would flight aware be any wiser of the crash? or does it just estimate a plane’s position?
