A skydiving plane was believed to have crashed in Riverside County because of a dirt devil and powerful winds.

According to CBS Los Angeles, there were two passengers on board the 1967 plane when it crashed. Reportedly the airplane clipped a nearby gas tanker at the Perris Valley Airport and landed nose down.

The skydiving plane was on it’s way back from a drop when the collision happened, luckily the pilot and the pilot in training who were on board weren’t injured.

The plane didn’t fare as well as it’s passengers, however, a wing broke off and its nose was smashed in.

Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld, who is the general manager of Sky Dive Perris said, “There’s still plenty of good parts on it.” He went on to say, “We will see when we get it over to the hangar.”
