Default RV 10 down

RV 10 down in the Marin Headlands, north of San Francisco around 2:15 PM today. Unfortunately, the (2) occupants died. The location is a couple miles from my house and it’s been dense, foggy conditions.

It appears to be right next to the Golden Gate Bridge.

My wife drove over the GG bridge around noon that day to visit her dad. When she came home she mentioned how thick the fog was. This from a woman who grew up in SF (fog city). Floor of the Class B is 3000ft over the bridge. Hills on the North are 1000ft plus. I have flown over that area many times myself, just not when obscured by fog. I hope the NTSB can shed some good insight. Condolences to family and loved ones.

Kathryns Report identified the passenger. ATC transcript of communication with norcal approach. and a statement that the owner had recently purchased the airplane.

The pilot was identified by a friend of the passenger. He got his ticket in late 2020. No IFR ticket. I listened to ATC from that day and about 5 mins prior to the accident the pilot asked for a transition to go to half moon bay. He was approved but told to stay clear of the bravo. To make that transition you have to get under 1600 feet along the shoreline. It was really foggy that day as well. Prayers to the families. A super sad event.
