Missing plane found with two bodies inside
A plane that went missing earlier this week was discovered early this morning with two bodies inside, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
The wrecked twin-engine Cessna 340 was found at 1:50 a.m. about six miles northwest of the Rialto Airport in the San Bernardino County foothills, said Ian Gregor, a spokesperson for the FAA Western-Pacific Region. The pilot and his one passenger were killed and the aircraft was destroyed, he said.
The plane apparently departed from Henderson, Nev., and was headed for Compton on Monday. A family member of one of those on board reported Wednesday that the plane had not arrived at its destination.
The cause of the crash is not yet known, Gregor said. The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the accident, he said.
The victims have not yet been publicly identified.
