Photograph caption dated February 26, 1988 reads, "Homeward bound: a single-engine airplane lies sandwiched between two homes yesterday in Pacoima after it lost power and crashed, narrowly missing a family of 10. The pilot tried to land the powerless craft at a nearby field, came up short and flopped on the driveway. Our photographer got a lift from a KNX Radio helicopter."
