“It’s a single-engine. He was making a landing, I guess, maybe, I don’t know what happened. I came out. I hear a thud. One of the golfers comes out and tells me that the plane just went down and sure enough: Beautiful yellow plane.

“We went out there and saw the pilot. There were two doctors on the scene and they were giving him first aid. He had a massive gash on his forehead.

"There was blood all over his face. Two very fine doctors were treating him, taking good care of him. I helped put a blanket under his hip," Howard Tabe, an employee at Penmar Golf Course, said.

According to Ian Gregor of the Federal Aviation Administration, Ford crash landed the plane on the on the eighth tee of the golf course shortly after taking off from the Santa Monica Airport.
