The last words of a pilot who crashed a private jet into a street in the US have been revealed after the tragedy killed everyone onboard.
On Monday the Learjet 35A, a business jet for up to eight people, is reported to have disintegrated after hitting the ground in the Bostonia area of El Cajon.
Air traffic control audio has been released from the jet as it captured the final words of the pilot.
In the clip, he is heard screaming "oh s***! Oh s***!" moments before the crash.
The audio was from dialogue between the flight and air traffic control as controllers cleared Runway 17 for the plane to land.
Just moments before his final words, he makes a request to switch to Runway 27 instead.
The controller responds: "IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) cancellation received. You can overfly the field, make left traffic, Runway 27 Right, Runway 27 Right, clear to land."
However, the plane got into difficulty in rainy conditions as it prepared to land at Gillespie Field, a county-owned airport.
