The NTSB

The NTSB, which operates independently of other government agencies, is primarily responsible for investigating aviation accidents and issuing safety recommendations based on its findings. While the NTSB has no direct regulatory or enforcement power with regard to aviation law, it does have significant power of influence on those who can effect change. In fact, approximately 80 percent of all NTSB safety recommendations are adopted by the FAA or other regulatory agencies.

"Plane Slams into Three Homes in California"

June 8, 2007

On June 4, a twin-engine Piper Seneca was approaching Cable Airport, which is about 40 miles east of Los Angeles, when the plane lost power, slamming into three separate homes as the pilot tried to land the plane. The pilot and two passengers received slight injuries. The plane came to a rest when it crash-landed on the third home's garage. None of the properties caught fire, although there was significant damage.

Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said that the pilot reported engine problems as it was approaching the airport, which is surrounded by housing tracts. The weather that day, sunny with no clouds or fog, did not seem to be a factor. The plane had departed from Van Nuys Airport.

In late 2003, a small plane crashed into a home in nearby Claremont, California, killing the pilot.
