A small, experimental aircraft crashed in the Sand Canyon area just after 12:00 Saturday afternoon. The two occupants of the plane were killed in the crash, however no other fatalities or injuries were reported.

It is not known at this time where the plane took off from or where it was headed.

Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said the single-engine Lancair aircraft was registered to an Encino resident.

FAA records show the plane registered to Ron I. Weiss, 43, of Lake Encino Drive in Encino.

Eyewitnesses described seeing the plane doing light turns when something went wrong and the plane spiraled and hit the ground nose first.

One local resident was the first on the scene, and she told KHTS that the two male passengers were dead on arrival.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash.



KHTS will update this story when new information is available.
