On Sunday 5 August, a Cessna 414 (N727RP) crashed on a parking lot near South Coast Plaza, a shopping mall in Costa Mesa, California. Rescue services rushed to the scene but could only determine the death of the five passengers.

The Cessna 414 is a light, pressurized, twin-engine transport aircraft and was flying from Concord, California to John Wayne Airport (SNA), Santa Ana, California.
