BURBANK — Investigators are working to determine how a small airplane registered to a Burbank resident crashed Saturday about eight miles northeast of Montgomery Field in San Diego, killing both onboard, authorities said. The San Diego County Medical Examiner withheld releasing names of the victims Monday pending notification of family members, investigators said. The office’s website identifies one of the victims as male. National Transportation Safety Board officials this week discovered several components of the airplane’s tail and outer wing hundreds of feet from the crash site, chief investigator Wayne Pollack said.
