SANTA MONICA—A mid-air plane collision on Monday, April 29, drew investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board and L.A. County Sheriff’s Department after human remains were discovered among the wreckage.

Original reports said that the two small planes collided over the Santa Monica Mountains, just northeast of Ventura, sending one aircraft plummeting and forcing the other aircraft to make an emergency landing at the Westlake Village Golf Course.

Officials said the pilot of the first aircraft was killed when the plane nose-dived into the mountains shortly after 2 p.m. on Monday.

The body of the pilot was discovered that evening near Mulholland Highway and La Virgenes Road, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Upon further investigation, officials discovered a second body in the wreckage.

According to officials, the two bodies of the crash could not be identified given the severity of their burns.

The three flyers in the second aircraft survived the mid-air collision and emergency landing, coming away with only minor injuries.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are continuing to investigate the incident and expect to have a preliminary report on the cause in a couple weeks.
