A Boeing 707 tanker plane skidded off a runway and burst into flames as it took off from Point Mugu Naval Air Station in Southern California, injuring the three people on board, an air base spokeswoman said. Broadcast reports showed thick black smoke and flames pouring from the light-colored aircraft after it slid off the runway at about 5:25 pm. The three on board, all civilian employees, escaped with minor injuries, air station spokeswoman Terry Reid. Reid said the plane is operated by Alexandria, Va-based-Omega Aerial Refueling Services, Inc, which contracts with the Navy to provide fleet operations support and fuel transport services. News reported about three injuries.
