Plane damages two others on ground at John Wayne Airport
SANTA ANA – A twin-engine plane struck two single-engine planes in a ground collision at John Wayne Airport on Wednesday afternoon, but no injuries were reported.
The pilot of a Beechcraft Baron was performing a preflight check of the aircraft shortly before 4:30 p.m. when it moved forward on its own, said Jenny Wedge, an airport spokeswoman.
The plane struck two other aircraft – a Cessna and a Bonanza – damaging both, Wedge said.
No one was injured in the collision, which occurred on the west side of the airfield. Authorities say it had no effect on the airport's operations.
The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the incident. The National Transportation Safety Board may also take part in the investigation if the damage to the aircrafts proves to be substantial, Wedge said.
