AVALON : 2 Killed in Plane Crash Near Catalina Airport

Two people died Wednesday when a private plane crashed near the airport on Catalina Island, a sheriff's deputy said.

The plane went down on a wooded and brushy hillside two miles west of Airport in the Sky about 3:15 p.m., said an airport official. The plane lost power after takeoff, said sheriff's Deputy Hal Grant.

A man and a woman, the only two on board, died at the scene, Grant said.
