Missing medical transport plane found crashed in Humboldt County, at least two killed in wreckage

Missing medical transport plane found crashed in Humboldt County, at least two killed in wreckage

Humboldt County have located a medical transport plane crashed and killed at least two of the individuals on board this morning in McKinleyville.

A pilot was taking a flight nurse, a transport medic and a patient from Crescent City, near the Oregon border, to Oakland. The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office didn't immediately release information about the fates of the other two people aboard.

The federal aviation administration says the pilot of the piper PA31 declared an emergency around 1 a.m. Friday when smoke filled the cockpit.

REACH air medical services says in a statement that the plane was carrying the pilot, a flight nurse, a transport medic and a patient.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor says the plane planned to fly about 360 miles from crescent city, near the Oregon border, to Oakland.

Gregor says the pilot reported that he planned to return to crescent city before losing contact. The plane went missing from radar 5 miles north of the Arcata-Eureka airport on the far northern coast of California.
