One person was killed and another injured Wednesday after two planes collided in a fiery crash at the Compton/Woodley Airport, officials said.
A single-engine North American T28 collided with another aircraft, a single-engine Cessna 152, which caught fire and burned, said a spokesman with the Federal Aviation Administration.
Downey firefighters responded to the scene shortly before 7 p.m., said an operator with the Downey Fire Department. The injured person was taken to a trauma center.
It’s unclear why the collision occurred and whether both people were on board. The FAA is investigating the circumstances of the crash.
