Plane crash in Oxnard kills two
A small plane crashed in Oxnard Saturday, killing two people.
The single-engine, home-built Less Drag Special crashed in an agricultural field about 1 1/2 miles southwest of the Oxnard Airport around noon, shortly after taking off, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said.
Both people on board died.
The circumstances of the crash were not yet known. Gregor said that an FAA investigator was on that scene and that the crash will be investigated by the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board.
The names of the victims and the tail number of the aircraft were not released, pending family notification.
