At Long Beach International Airport (LGB), a Cessna 172 crashed into a hangar. Images of the accident show the plane stuck on the building’s roof.

According to a report by CBS News, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) stated that the pilot was practicing landings and takeoffs at the airport when the tragedy happened.

The aircraft’s sole occupant, the pilot, was able to escape the scene of the accident by climbing onto the roof, but he had to be medically evacuated afterward.

Around 45 gallons (170.3 liters) of fuel, according to the Long Beach Fire Department (LBFD), poured into the hangar. Thankfully, there wasn’t any fire.

There were a couple of Cessna 172s practicing touch-and-goes at LGB, according to data from Flightradar24.com. Crosschecking the flight path information with information from Google Maps and video given by local TV stations revealed that the possible identity of the aircraft was N3307E, a Cessna 172 registered to Jeffrey & Weiss Holdings.

The company’s owner is in charge of Pacific Air Flight School, a 2017-founded flight school.

The aircraft, one of the newest in the fleet, is described as having a Garmin 430 GPS in addition to the “standard 6-pack flight instrument setup and dual nav/com radios” on the company’s website.
