Plane crash into California neighborhood home leaves 5 dead

Heartfelt sadness goes to the victims of this matter.. 

The twin-engine plane came apart and caught fire mid-flight, witnesses told local media, before crashing in Yorba Linda, a suburb of Los Angeles.

The flight went awry just minutes after taking off from a local airport, some 20 miles (32km) south-east of the city.

The victims have not yet been named. Fire officials say two people were treated in hospital for burns.

Local residents described a shrill whistling sound before an explosion set the two-storey home on fire at 13:45 (21:45 GMT) on Sunday. 

The pilot was the Cessna 414A's only occupant, and a source told the Los Angeles Times the man had flown frequently out of the Fullerton Municipal Airport. 

Those killed in the home were two males and two females, Orange County officials said at a news conference..

Various websites are showcasing both images and video of the tragic event..
For me, there was a little twist of creepiness involved as well..

If anyone else out there is a fan of the movie DONNIE DARKO from 2001, you may recall the scene when a small plane engine crashes down onto the house.. there is more than that, like Frank the rabbit and the parallel universe issue.. 

One particular image of the scene from the CALI crash had me recalling the scene from DONNIE DARKO.. A chilling likness..

The first image was the scene from California Sunday..The next is the film DONNIE DARKO..
