Pilot Killed in Plane Crash in Sylmar Area is Identified – Los Angeles

John King, Torrance, was identified as the pilot who died after crashing his small plane in Sylmar.

According to the coroner, he was killed when his twin-engine Cessna 33 Skymaster crashed beside the westbound Foothill (210) Freeway.

According to the FAA, the National Transportation Safety Board is currently investigating the causes of the crash.

The reason the plane crashed was not immediately known. It is located near Whiteman Airport, in the northeastern San Fernando Valley.

It is the third recent crash near Whiteman Airport.

One Civil Air Patrol pilot was killed when a plane crashed into a nearby neighborhood.

A Metrolink train hit a Metrolink train in January after a plane crashed onto tracks near the airport. LAPD officers saved the pilot from the wreckage just moments before the train crashed into his plane.

The county Board of Supervisors directed its staff to start compiling data and documents that would be required to present to FAA in case the county wanted to close the airport.
