Transcript for Plane skids off runway, bursts into flames
Now to that plane crash in California. Ten passengers and the pilot lucky to be alive after their jet skidded off the runway, bursting into flames. The NTSB heading to the scene this morning and Adrienne Bankert is there on the scene for us, as well, has the latest. Good morning, Adrienne. Reporter: Good morning to you, too, robin. You can see the wreckage behind us. There are two fascinating pieces to the story. One you mentioned there, ten people were able to survive this crash and the second is what investigators are going to be looking at, just why the pilot decided it was best not to take off. The NTSB is investigating what caused this fiery plane crash at a California airport. The pilot of this private jet with ten people on board suddenly aborts the takeoff. The plane never leaves the ground but slides across the runway crashing and bursting into flames with over 400 gallons of fuel on board. Affirmative, responding ems, be advised per bcso, the plane is fully engulfed. Reporter: Remarkably everyone on the plane walked away reportedly uninjured even after the multimillion dollar Cessna citation caught fire. I'm amazed somebody got out of that alive. It was fully engulfed in flames and just pure black smoke. Reporter: Investigators say it was set to live from oroville 60 miles outside Sacramento for Portland, Oregon, when that takeoff was aborted. Officials want to know what caused that decision but thankful this crash didn't end in tragedy. They all got out and they all walked away. So that's the best case. Reporter: And here's the thing, the FAA and NTSB have been busy. There have been two other plane crashes this week, of course, all unrelated. We still don't know who was on board this aircraft but we're very thankful that they were able to walk away. Amy, I'll send it back to you. Thank you so much, Adrienne.
