World War I replica biplane crashes shortly after takeoff from private airstrip

San Luis Obispo County Sheriff‘s Deputies responded Sunday morning to reports of a plane crash in a field off of Highway 46 East near Estrella Road.

When they arrived, they discovered a single-engine World War I replica biplane, authorities said.

There was one adult male occupant on board the plane who was deceased. Following notification of next of kin, he was identified as Javier Fernando Arango, 54, of Los Angeles. The sheriff’s office is conducting a death investigation.

The plane apparently had taken off a few minutes earlier around 9 a.m. from a private airstrip a few miles away before it crashed into the field.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are en route to the scene. No further information is available at this time.
