Made a few calls to a few of the locals who fly choppers daily @ Corona. Lets hope the guy just made a mistake and is ok. Single engine and fog... Not good. Scares me to loose a motor and not be able to pick a safe spot to land....

UPDATED 10:21 p.m.: According to FAA spokesman Ian Gregor, a Corona Police Dept search helicopter found the wreckage in a densely wooded area that was extremely difficult to spot from the air.
Searchers found the wreckage on a final pass of the day at dusk. No one was sent in at that time to search for the two people reported on the plane. "A person onboard the helicopter that found the wreckage told me that from the condition of the wreckage, it was extremely unlikely anybody survived," said Gregor.


Plane reg to a company in Stanton,I think RM elect.
