A pilot and his passenger were killed in a plane crash in San Diego Friday afternoon.
The pilot was operating a single-engine Cessna 182 that departed from Lompoc in Santa Barbara County to McClellan-Palomar Airport in San Diego County when the plane crashed in a remote area of the Los Padres National Forest.
Accordingly to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the plane departed around 9 p.m. but the pilot made mayday call reporting loss of engine power about 18 miles northeast of Santa Barbara.
The plane was found early Friday morning 30 to 40 miles north of Ojai.
The passenger was flying to a business meeting in San Luis Obispo when the plane crashed.
Both the pilot and passenger were pronounced dead at the scene.
