Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department was called out to the Livermore Municipal Airport Tuesday afternoon after a plane skid off the runway.

"We received the call at 4:01 pm that a Cessna 152 skid off the runway and crashed into some of the lighting that marks the landing strip after landing," said Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department Battalion Chief Joe Testa. "The plane, valued at $30,000 was most likely totaled."

The airplane, owned by Ahart Aviation Services in Livermore was used for instructional operations, Testa said.

The pilot of the Cessna 152 was a student pilot, he said. No injuries were reported.

As to whether these incidents have occurred in the past, Testa said:

"We’ve had bad landings before but I can’t recall any recently."

My guess is that the student pilot got an "F" in the course.

I would like to retract my previous comment. After some fierce investigative journalism, i have uncoverwd that it was drugs (not booze) which caused the accident. My apologies

I "heard" that the guy was smoking crack and watching a movie, I "think" I "heard" the movie was Finding Nemo.

I wish they'd all skid off the runway, and right out of town. Especially the jets.
