Pilot Thomas Bruff, 57, Killed in Angeles National Forest Plane Crash Near Mt. Wilson

plane crash near Mt. WilsonLOS ANGELES COUNTY (May 16, 2016) – A 57-year-old San Diego man identified as Thomas Christopher Bruff died in a plane crash Sunday in the Angeles National Forest near Mt. Wilson, according to KTLA.

In an article by The Los Angeles Times, sheriff’s department said the Cessna 182 was traveling to Santa Monica from from Montgomery Field in San Diego about 7:30 a.m. with the sole pilot on board.

When the fixed-wing single-engine plane was over the Los Angeles County, it went northeast from its path to Santa Monica. The radar lost contact with the plane an hour later when it was about 17 miles east of Van Nuys.

Bruff, the pilot and sole occupant at the time, was killed in the accident.

A search-and-rescue was launched but was delayed because of foul weather and limited information.

Meanwhile, FAA registration records said the plane was registered to a San Diego-based company, San Diego Skylane LLC.

The incident remains under investigation.
