FULLERTON, CA (May 21, 2020) – On Wednesday, a man who is not a licensed pilot is suspected of stealing an airplane and crash landing at Fullerton Municipal Airport. The May 20 incident occurred when the plane smashed into a fence not far from the runway’s end.

Reports say the suspected allegedly stole an airplane–described as a Cessna 172–which authorities believe had been located at the Chino Airport. According to reports, authorities do not know how the suspect was able to take the plane, nor how long he had it in his possession.
