Biplane Crashes in Santa Rosa California
On April 20, 2013, a Boeing A75N1 Stearman took off from Petaluma airport and lost power at 2,000 feet before making a hard landing in a Santa Rosa vineyard near 6500 Jamison Road. Witnesses heard a plane flying low around 10 a.m..
The pilot, Patrick Bell, circled looking for a place to land before finding the vineyard.
The pilot was able to exit the plane under his own steam and although the plane flipped, Bell was uninjured.
