1 Dead After 2 Planes Collide at California Airport

One person was killed when two small planes collided in a fiery crash at Compton/Woodley Airport in California Wednesday night.

The crash involved a vintage Vietnam-era T-28 aircraft and a small plane that appears to be a Cessna. The small plane was destroyed and burned up in the crash. One pilot was apparently ejected from one of the aircraft and killed. Witnesses say it appeared the Cessna had already landed and was taxiing when the other pilot, possibly having trouble with the setting sun, also tried landing on the same runway and crashed into it.
