MURRIETA, Calif. (KABC) -- NTSB investigators are on scene after a small plane crashed as it attempted to land for the second time at the French Valley Airport in Riverside County, killing all six adults on board.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, a 1979 Cessna C550 business jet departed from Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas at around 3:15 a.m. Saturday and was set to land at the French Valley Airport in Murrieta.

The plane was not originally scheduled to fly at the time, but it was cleared to fly last minute.

A marine layer enveloped the area shortly before the twin-jet airplane was scheduled to land. It crashed short of the airport during its second approach around 4:15 a.m., officials said.

"The pilot reported to air traffic control that he was going to perform a missed approach, which generally happens when the pilot can't see the runway," said Eliott Simpson of the NTSB at a press conference Saturday.

The departure airport was KLAS. You should be able to catch the entire departure from there.

At the time of the crash, a marine layer had settled over the area, causing reduced visibility. The twin-jet airplane crashed short of the airport during its second approach, which occurred around 4:15 a.m., according to officials.
