PACOIMA, CA (September 4, 2018) – An airplane crashed late in the afternoon on Monday at Whiteman Airport in Pacoima, killing the pilot and injuring a boy who was a passenger.

The Los Angeles Fire Department said the plane, described as a Cessna 150L, crashed at the Whiteman Airport, located at 12653 Osborne Street in Pacoima.
