According to the flight tracking website, FlightAware, the small plane, a Learjet 35, took off from Halsey Field on North Island at 12:22 p.m. and made several “figure 8” movements before heading back toward the airfield at 1:17 p.m. 

San Diego is experiencing poor weather with some speculating that poor visibility and slippery condition caused the pilot to be unable to land safely. 

It is unknown how many people were inside the plane at the time of the crash landing and if there are any injuries.

No other information was made immediately available.
