June 25, Lakeside, Calif. / Beech Bonanza


At about 09:54 Pacific time, a Beech 35-B33 crashed into a residential area about 3.3 miles from Gillespie Field, where the flight had been cleared to land. The pilot was killed. The flight was en route from El Cajon to an undetermined destination in Arizona and was cruising at 7,000 feet when the pilot said he needed to return because he was not feeling well. Several witnesses reported observing the airplane descend in a steep bank until it collided with residential property and terrain.
