A federal investigator says no problems were reported before a private jet crashed into a hangar and burst into flames while landing at a Southern California airport.
National Transportation Safety Board lead investigator Van McKenny says the pilot of the Cessna 525A did not report any mechanical trouble with the aircraft during its Sunday flight from Hailey, Idaho, to Santa Monica.
An official with Morley Construction says CEO Mark Benjamin and his son, Luke, were believed to be aboard the jet. Luke Benjamin is a senior project manager at the Santa Monica-based company.
It was unknown if anyone else was aboard.
Fire crews responded quickly because their station was almost directly behind the accident site, but Santa Monica Fire Department Capt. John Nevandro called it an "unsurvivable crash."
