The missing charter plane bound to John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana from Catalina was found this morning on top of a hill just west of the island's airport. Three burned bodies were found inside. The LA Times found that the pilot, Mark Hogland, was not licensed to fly commercial flights like the one he allegedly was doing when the plane crash.
