David Everett Plumb Identified as Pilot Killed in Plane Crash Over San Pablo Bay

Categories: Local News

The Contra Costa County Coroner says the pilot who was killed Sunday after colliding with another pilot was 33-year-old David Everett Plumb, a Rocklin resident.

According to press reports, Plumb's body was recovered on Wednesday after Coast Guard boats and helicopters scoured the waters for more than 48 hours looking for the missing plane.

Plumb's Cessna 210 crashed into the water after it collided midair with a vintage Hawker Sea Fury TMK 20. Reports indicate the pilot in the Sea Fury had pulled up to the left side of Plumb's plane, but it's unclear what happened next.

The Sea Fury's pilot saw Plumb's plane go down; he then flew about 100 miles to land his own plane.

The San Francisco Police Department spotted the fuselage of the Cessna 210 about 4 p.m. Tuesday under 13 feet of water, a little more than a mile from the Richmond shoreline.

An autopsy is scheduled for Plumb today.
