“Several dead” in the collision of two small planes over the California airport

Two small planes collided over a California airport on Thursday, local authorities said, reporting multiple fatalities, but without further details for now.

According to the FAA, two people were on board a Cessna 340 and a third was in a Cessna 152.

The plane “collided while the pilots were on the final line of approach to Watsonville Municipal Airport,” a small facility about 120 miles south of San Francisco, the FAA said in a statement.

The city of Watsonville tweeted reports of “multiple deaths,” with no further details.

The FAA only said that no one was injured on the ground.

An investigation is being carried out by the American traffic safety authority NTSB.
