Plane in deadly crash out of Concord was registered to SF company

A small airplane that crashed Sunday in Southern California after taking off from Concord was registered to a San Francisco-based company, according to federal aviation records.

Five people aboard the Cessna 414 aircraft died in a Santa Ana shopping mall parking lot when the plan crashed at 12:28 p.m. near John Wayne Airport, according to the Federal Aviation Administration and the Orange County Fire Authority. The twin-engine plane, manufactured in 1973, departed from Concord’s Buchanan Airport.

There were no reported injuries on the ground, said Capt. Steve Concialdi of Orange County Fire.

The aircraft declared an emergency before crashing, the FAA said.

The FAA is investigating, and the National Safety Transportation Board will determine the cause of the accident.
