5 Killed After Plane Crashes In California Parking Lot, Investigation Underway Now



A small twin-engine plane crashed in a shopping center parking lot in Orange County California on Sunday afternoon – all five passengers perished.

The Orange County Fire Authority confirmed that fire and rescue units were sent to the 3900 block of Bristol Street in the city of Santa Ana after a report of a plane down.

Footage and photos on social media showed the wreckage of a twin-engine Cessna aircraft.

The fire department later said the plane went down at around 12:30 p.m. in the parking lot of a shopping center. All five individuals that perished were aboard the plane and there were no fatalities on the ground. The crash took place in a Southern California parking lot of a Staples store and CVS pharmacy.

Faith Family America reported that the plane belonged to the San Fransisco-based real estate company Catagory II. The Federal Aviation Administration said the Cessna 414, which is considered a safe and reliable small two-engine plane had declared an emergency and was granted permission to land at Orange County’s John Wayne Airport moments before the crash.

The OC Register reports:

“Four Bay Area residents and a Los Angeles man were identified Monday, Aug. 6 as the five who were killed when a plane crashed into a Santa Ana shopping center parking lot the day before.

The pilot was Scott Shepherd, 53, of Diablo, Ca., the Orange County coroner’s office said, and the passengers were: Lara Shepherd, 42, of Diablo; Floria Hakimi, 62, of Danville; Navid Hakimi, 32, of Los Angeles; Nasim Ghanadan, 29, of Alamo.

No one on the ground was killed in the Sunday, Aug. 5 crash that occurred in a center with a CVS and a Staples on Bristol Street near Sunflower Avenue and across the street from South Coast Plaza. The 1973 Cessna 414 was on approach to nearby John Wayne Airport when it went down shortly before 12:30 p.m.

The Cessna dove straight into an unoccupied red Chevy sedan, parked in front of the CVS. Firefighters said it was a “miracle” no one on the ground of the busy shopping center was injured.

The plane’s pilot made a distress call to John Wayne Airport’s air traffic control tower, Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said Monday.

Around 12:31 p.m. an air traffic controller directed the pilot of another aircraft to hunt for the downed plane.

“Go to South Coast Plaza. See if you can find that aircraft,” the air traffic controller says in a radio transmission recording.

Lara Shepherd, Hakimi and Ghanadan were all real estate agents with Pacific Union International, a spokesman said. The company operates largely in Northern California. In an Instagram post from early Sunday, Floria Hakimi shared a photo of herself boarding an aircraft.

Her biography on the Pacific Union website says that “Floria is a trusted counselor, skilled negotiator, and an expert facilitator for all aspects of residential real estate.” It added that she enjoyed biking, playing tennis and spending time with family and friends. She also was involved with community and charity organizations.

Ghanadan, a real estate consultant, had a background in economics and international relations and was known for her “honesty, tenacious work ethic, strong negotiation skills, and cheerful spirit,” her work profile says.

Lara Shepherd was married to Scott Shepherd, who was also a real estate in the Bay Area. They are survived by two children.

Navid Hakimi who was based out of Los Angeles was Floria Hakimi’s son, according to social-media posts.

Navid, who lists himself as a musician, posted a story on Instagram showing him sitting in a moving plane that appeared to be about to take off. He took a short video clip from inside showing him seated and the cockpit behind him.

The plane was registered to Category III Aviation Corp., a San Francisco company, and had flown from the East Bay suburb of Concord, according to Federal Aviation Administration records.

It was heading for Atlantic Aviation, one of the airport’s fixed-base operators, to park. An FAA spokeswoman said the plane had reported an emergency but she did not elaborate.

Monday morning, federal officials were at the crash site, continuing their investigation. At a morning press conference, Albert Nixon, senior aviation accident investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board, said that the plane hit four cars in the parking lot, including a red Chevy sedan that took the brunt of the impact.

Nixon said that the pilot declared an emergency but did not say what that emergency was. He said that a preliminary report on the incident would likely be available next week.

“We’re here to gather the facts,” said Jack Vanover, another NTSB investigators. “We’ll be looking at all information regarding the pilot, airplane … environmental conditions.”

The investigators did not provide any information about the possible cause of the crash, citing the pending investigation. Authorities said the aircraft would likely be moved from its resting place Monday to a hangar, where it would be examined further.”

The FAA has now launched an investigation into the crash, along with the National Transportation Safety Board, which will determine the probable cause of this tragedy.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It




* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate




* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
