Two people were injured on Thursday after a small airplane was left flipped upside-down after it attempted to land on the shoreline of the Santa Monica Beach. According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the pilot attempted an emergency landing after reporting engine issues.

A single-engine Cessna 150A plane attempted to land just south of Santa Monica’s popular pier and slammed into the shoreline on Thursday, ultimately flipping and landing upside-down. The Los Angeles County Fire Department reported two people trapped inside the aircraft had been rescued.

One passenger on board suffered a cardiac emergency and both passengers were taken to the hospital for treatment; however, their current conditions are unknown. No other injuries were reported.

A video shared on Twitter shows the plane’s crash landing, revealing how the plane came to an abrupt stop and flipped after it hit the shoreline.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will be investigating the crash and releasing the preliminary results of their investigation in the coming days.

  1. Vaccinated? Probably…and the Cessna 150A is now 63 years old.
    Any airframe of that age should have been re-built and re-certified, with a new factory fresh zero-time engine.
    Microlites, Recreational Aircraft (less than 1200 gross weight in some nations) and ‘extended-life via STC’s and Airworthiness Directives (AD’s)’ for old aircraft can only go so far for extending reliability due to aircraft and engine age.
    No one can afford aircraft maintenance anymore, as the cost of parts is extortion (toilet paper oil filter w/ CAA / FAA stamp; $250)
    (roll of ordinary toilet paper without the CAA / FAA stamp, but with the same micron porosity; .99 cents…).
    The skies are clearing out now, as the elite want the airspace for themselves. They travel at night and deplane in the dark, so no one can see or photograph them coming to CHC, AKL, QTN, etc.
    That is why real estate prices are NOT dropping in Queenstown and Christchurch…!
