Roy Anderson, Dahlia Anderson Yorba Linda Plane Crash Victims Identified

Roy Anderson, Dahlia Anderson Yorba Linda Plane Crash Victims Identified5 Killed in Yorba Linda Plane Crash into Home

YORBA LINDA, Calif. (Feb. 6, 2019) — Roy Lee Anderson, 85, and his wife, Dahlia Marlies Leber Anderson, 68, were identified as the homeowners killed when a small plane crashed into their Yorba Linda home on Super Bowl Sunday. Also killed were relatives, Stacie Norene Leber, 48, of Corona, and Donald Paul Elliott, 58, of Norco, who were visiting the Anderson’s at their two-story home, and the previously identified pilot of the aircraft.

Two others were injured in the collision and suffered burns.

“We are devastated by our loss of our family members who will be greatly missed. Our family bond is tight and each member lost in this tragedy represents more than just one role within our family,” a statement from family members of the Andersons said.  “We want to thank our extended family and friends who have provided amazing support, kindness and compassion. It takes a village.”

The Cessna plane that struck their home had just taken off from Fullerton Airport around 1:35 p.m. The aircraft had reached about 7,800 feet before it began to break apart in mid-air and its parts rained down on the neighborhood where the Anderson’s lived. Their home, which was hit by falling debris about 1:45 p.m., became engulfed in flames. As many as 16 homes in the area were impacted by the airplane debris in some way.

Antonio Pastini, 75, of Nevada, who was piloting the plane, also died in the collision.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) are heading up the investigation into what led the aircraft to fall apart mid-air. It could take up to 18 months to complete. The evidence collected from the neighborhood was taken to a Phoenix storage facility.
