News Plane incidents — 21 October 2017

A single-engine plane went off the end of a runway at Riverside Municipal Airport on Friday and skidded to a stop in a dirt overrun, but no one was injured.

The accident, involving a Beech Bonanza, was reported about 1:25 p.m. on Runway 34 on the west end of the airfield facing Central Avenue.

An air traffic controller immediately requested assistance from the Riverside Fire Department, and personnel arrived less than 5 minutes later.

“The Bonanza apparently landed too long and went past a barrier at the end of the runway,” Division Chief Dave Bakas told City News Service. “All occupants got out. Nobody was hurt.”

According to the airport’s automated information service, winds were about 15 mph.
