I remember hearing about a small plane crash just off the California coast Christmas day where they pulled a single survivor out of the ocean. I thought nothing of it other than, "Man, that sucks. Chrismas Day." Now, this morning I wake to hear that this plane crashed right off the coast of the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant and that the deceased all belonged to the same Mosque. All I could think to myself was "WTF?" Does anyone know any more details? I hope that it was shot out of the sky, or at least light a fire up someones ass to boost security around these plants with some Phalanx guns or SAM's.

Nothing suspicious, just your average general aviation mishap.

And this one wasn't in restricted airspace.

The San Onofre Nuke Plant is just north of CRQ (Palomar Airport) where the plane took off. The were headed back for the LA area. They were on a normal path for heading north...I used it all the time. Why would you bother to report an engine problem if your plans were to do some damage to the plant? I think you would be saying something like "Remember the Taliban!" instead (g). - Anarki
