CHICO — A small airplane crashed on the runway of the Chico Regional Airport at around 9:30 a.m. Saturday, but the plane’s two passengers escaped with minor injuries.
Chico Fire Department dispatchers responded to the call, sending firefighters and paramedics on the scene. The plane was not on fire. It was still sitting upright — though on its belly — near the airport’s Runway 13L while three fire engines, one truck and Battalion Chief Jim Lucanic attended to it. A crew from the nearby Chico Air Attack Base — a Cal Fire facility — added support.
The passengers of the plane were only slightly hurt, but otherwise unharmed. Lucanic claimed that he had then reduced his response to only one engine and said the passengers didn’t go to hospital.
Lucanic confirmed that the Federal Aviation Administration is currently investigating the crash.
