Craft in Redwood Shores crash was due for inspection 

The plane that crashed into the Redwood Shores lagoon on Sept. 2, killing the pilot and two passengers, had passed its last inspection a year ago and was being moved in preparation for an upcoming annual inspection, according to a preliminary National Transportation Safety Board report.

The plane, a 1961 Beech 65, was seen veering to the right and then correcting itself just after taking off from the San Carlos Airport. Then it rolled and turned to the right again, and descended steeply into the lagoon. There were no radio transmissions.

A final report on the crash is expected to take six to nine months for completion.
