United Press International

Two men were killed Tuesday in the crash of a small plane just north of the U.S.-Mexico border, the San Diego County coroner’s office said.

The plane, a light experimental type, crashed in a field shortly after takeoff from the Brown Field airport in the Otay Mesa area.

A Navy helicopter pilot on maneuvers in the area spotted the pilot and passenger slumped inside the plane and reported the crash, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said.

A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman said three FAA inspectors were sent to the site to investigate.
