The Crossings at Carlsbad golf course claimed another plane yesterday September 22, 2008, at about 4:45 PM as a Cesna 152 single engine plane crashed into a ravine near the 16th hole, according to a story in the San Diego Union-Triubune.

Golfers witnessed it and ran to their aid, carried them out of the plane,” Carlsbad Battalion Chief Jim Torretto said. . . . The pilot, 22, and passenger, 19, had flown from Long Beach in the Cessna owned by Rainbow Air Academy. . . The men, whom he described as alert but confused, were carried out of the ravine by firefighters. A helicopter landed on a dirt lot and took the men to a hospital. They had suffered fractures and cuts.

In the past two years nine people have died in crashes after landing or taking off at McClellan-Palomar.
