Default Only a ONE Million Dollar Cleanup


SAN DIEGO — Five people escaped uninjured on Saturday when a corporate jet they were in crashed upon takeoff at the Montgomery-Gibbs Executive Airport in Kearny Mesa, fire officials said.
At 11:47 a.m. Saturday, the jet hit the dirt at the end of the runway and lost its wheels, said Battalion Chief Matt Nilsen of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
The fire department said the private jet was loaded down with 3,400 gallons of fuel when the jet experienced a malfunction causing the pilots to abort the take off.

All five people on board got off the jet with no injuries reported, Nilsen said. Fire units arrived at the airport at 3799 John J. Montgomery Drive at 11:54 a.m. The Chief also told CBS 8 that the plane was headed to Hawaii.

A plane crash in February at Montgomery Field requiring nearly $1 million in environmental clean-up efforts forced the San Diego City Council to approve on Tuesday an emergency influx of cash for the city’s airports fund.
The $1.5 million in cash will cover $911,000 for the crash clean-up, $340,000 to upgrade buildings at Montgomery Field in Kearny Mesa for a possible tenant, and $270,000 to analyze proposed upgrades at Brown Field in Otay Mesa. The $340,000 will cover heating and ventilation upgrades to buildings at Montgomery Field that the city acquired when they were abandoned by a former tenant.

The city hopes to get reimbursed for the clean-up costs by the pilot responsible for the Feb. 13 crash or his insurance company, Jorge , the city’s deputy director for airports, told the council’s budget committee in early April.

The plane failed to leave the ground when trying to take off and then crashed into a Federal Aviation Administration navigational aid, ran through an environmentally sensitive vernal pool and then crashed, spilling 3,400 gallons of fuel, Jorge said."
