This twin engine turbo prop Mitsubishi founds itself on a service road instead of a taxiway Thursday afternoon, prompting an Alert 2 to be called at The Bob Hope Airport.
The pilot stated that he made a mistake in his haste to leave Bob Hope Airport and got confused and ended up on the service road that runs around the west end of runway 8 along Vineland Avenue. The service road is used for cars, trucks, and emergency equipment… but not planes.
There were no injuries and the pilot and his passenger were pulled back to Atlantic Aviation via tug.
The Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena Airport Authority Fire Department along with Airport Police responded and said this is going to be considered an incident not an accident.
