SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY – Authorities are investigating a plane crash that occurred Saturday evening in a rural area not far from the Weston Ranch community.

At 7:39pm the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office reported a military plane had crashed in the area of South Roberts and Muller Roads.

Early reports indicate the craft had three persons aboard. Two were transported to a hospital and the third was able to walk away from the crash. The craft appeared to have significant damage.

The aircraft appeared to be a Mitchell B-25J called “Old Glory.” The plane is listed as owned by David Prescott of the Prescott Foundation.

Most recently in early September, the craft flew to Hawaii to commemorate the end of World War II, as well as delivered 30 pallets of toys to the islands for Toys for Tots.

Authorities say the airplane struck an irrigation ditch as it came down, and the injuries sustained were not life threatening.
