A spokesperson for Pacific Union revealed all of the passengers on the aircraft were employees of the real estate company.

The twin-engine Cessna plane was bound for John Wayne Airport, when the pilot declared an emergency.

The crash came about a year after a twin-engine airplane burst into flames as it crash-landed on the 405 Freeway just a few miles away after taking off from John Wayne Airport.

When the engine failed the aircraft began free-falling from the sky and before landing in an empty parked auto outside of a Staples store.

The crash came almost a year after a twine-engine plane taking off from John Wayne Airport burst into flames and crash landed on the 405 freeway.
