Biplane crash survivors!

Plane reportedly lost power while attempting to land in Oceanside

At 11:22 a.m. on August 5, a 1940s-era bi-winged light plane crashed and flipped over on approach to Oceanside Municipal Airport. Oceanside police officers arrived to find the pilot, Lance Murray, and his passenger Daniel Harabagiu, were able to walk away from the crash with minor abrasions.

The plane rested upside-down in a field across Foussat Drive, just off Highway 76, about 100 yards from the beginning of the airport’s runway. No fluids spilled, so there was no risk of fire danger in the dry brush.

The flyers didn’t stick around to talk to the media. A person on site around 3:00 p.m. was there to investigate the crash for the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board but wasn’t willing to comment to the media.

According to department’s public information officer, Lt. Leonard Cosby, the plane was expected to be towed away by 5:00 p.m.

According to initial reports, the flight originally took off from Carlsbad’s Palomar Airport and was attempting to make a landing at Oceanside when the plane lost power. The plane was not part of the bi-plane tour rides one can take out of Carlsbad airport.
