The pilot of a small plane was killed when the aircraft crashed Friday about three miles southeast of Camarillo Airport.
The crash occurred near Potrero Road and Old Hueneme Road around 12:15 p.m., according to the Ventura County Fire Department.
The plane was returning to Point Mugu after completing a routine mission, base officials said.
It took off from the base on a training sortie with another aircraft and went down as it was returning, about two miles from the runway in the middle of a farm field.
Ventura County Fire spokesperson Steve Swindle did not know if the pilot was a civilian or a member of the military.
