Photographs are made of the charred debris that remains after a small plane described as a kit crashed onto a dry hillside near North Livermore Avenue north of westbound Interstate 580 on Saturday, June 21, 2014, in unincorporated Livermore, Calif. J.D. Nelson, public information officer for the Alameda County Sheriff's Office, said the plane had taken off from the nearby Livermore Airport and the tower reportedly saw flames coming from the aircraft. The male pilot, who did not have a parachute, leapt from the plane, Nelson said, and was killed after falling 1,000 to 1,500 feet. His body landed about 300 yards from the plane. Emergency responders extinguished a 1.5-acre fire caused by the crash. (Cindi Christie/Bay Area News Group) (CINDI CHRISTIE)
