Investigation underway after Jesuit High School parent killed in plane crash

A federal investigation is underway to find out why a Sacramento-area plane crashed near the Golden Gate Bridge, killing both people on board. One of those killed has been identified as Jesuit High School parent Jennifer “JJ” Fox, the school said in a letter to families Saturday. The other person was identified early Monday as Michael B. Briare, 57, of Sacramento. The plane, a fixed-wing, single-engine Vans RV-10, crashed just after noon on Friday on a hill near the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. . At the time of the accident, the area was shrouded in thick fog. According to flight records from the plane’s ADS-B, a system that automatically transmits the location and movement of planes, the plane took off from Sacramento Executive Airport, flew just over 40 minutes to San Francisco Bay and crashed into the Marin Headlands. Directly before the crash, the aircraft completed two loops over the Golden Gate Bridge. Several aviation experts told KCRA 3 that the loop above the bridge just before the crash “looks neat”. “Our plan is to document the wreckage before authorizing its recovery from a secure facility in Sacramento,” officials said at a Saturday news conference with the National Transportation Safety Board. According to records obtained from FlightAware, the plane, with tail number N54MG, is relatively new, as of 2017. It seated four people and is classified as “experimental,” which the Federal Aviation Administration says is issued kit-built aircraft. The FAA website explains the experimental classification with respect to kit-built aircraft as aircraft that have been “assembled without the supervision and quality control of the production certificate holder”. According to the FAA, kit-built aircraft are not uncommon. Investigations involving the FAA and NTSB can take several months, up to five years. The plane was removed from the scene by the NTSB on Sunday. He will now be placed in a secure facility in Sacramento while authorities investigate, the NTSB said Saturday. | VIDEO BELOW | Sacramento high school parent killed in fatal Marin Headlands plane crash
