An official responded on Friday after a small civilian plane crashed in California’s San Diego Bay after failing to land safely.

Video on the San Diego Web Cam YouTube channel showed the small plane, a Learjet 35, landed between a stretch of rocks and the bay off a runway at Naval Air Station North Island.

Two people were on board and were able to escape from the plane after the crash. The two passengers were both taken to hospital as a precaution but suffered no major injuries.

Despite intermittent rain and gusty winds, the runways at the Naval Air Station were open to arriving and departing aircraft.

According to the flight tracking website, FlightAware, the small plane, a Learjet 35, took off from Halsey Field on the North Island at 12:22 p.m. and made several “figure 8” movements before returning to the airfield at 1:17 p.m.

San Diego is experiencing poor weather, with some speculating that poor visibility and slippery conditions prevented the pilot from landing safely. San Diego International Airport reported 0.56″ of mid-afternoon precipitation, a daily record.

Federal agencies will examine the wreckage and determine what caused the plane to overrun the runway.
