A charter plane that clipped two school buses in an emergency landing near Van Nuys Airport had no fuel left in its main tanks and fewer than six gallons in auxiliary tanks, according to a preliminary report released Tuesday by the National Transportation Safety Board. Further studies will be conducted to determine if the remaining fuel was sufficient to sustain engine power during an angled descent for landing, said Bob Crispin, NTSB air safety investigator.

In a near-catastrophe, a crippled airplane careened down a San Fernando Valley street Wednesday afternoon, clipping the front ends of two school buses carrying nearly 50 children but causing only two injuries. "The potential for tragedy was tremendous," said Los Angeles Police Capt. Joseph Curreri. "Only by the grace of God did more than 50 individuals escape serious injury or death." Both buses were damaged, and the plane's wingtip fuel tanks were sheared off.

For the third time in one week, an aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing on a busy roadway near a San Fernando Valley airport, again narrowly averting tragedy. On Saturday at 3:40 p.m., a helicopter that had just taken off from Pacoima's Whiteman Airpark had to make a "hard landing" on Osborne Street, a busy four-lane road adjacent to the airfield. There were no injuries.

1: The stock market's 554-point plunge Oct. 27 was its worst point loss ever, but not its biggest setback on a percentage basis. The market that day fell: a) 8% b) 7% c) 6% d) 3% 2: The estimated $311 million being paid by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. for the Los Angeles Dodgers is nearly twice as much as the existing record price paid for a major league baseball team.

Local politicians may not share the same views on the deficit or Bill Clinton's patriotism, but the last week has shown they do agree on one thing: the need to ban nighttime helicopter tours to preserve peace in the Valley. No fewer than seven elected officials--ranging from city councilmen to a congressman from the San Fernando Valley--issued statements calling for a ban on night tour flights out of Van Nuys Airport to reduce noise in neighboring communities.
