A Cessna 421 C Golden Eagle carrying four people crash landed after taking off from Hobby Airport Friday afternoon.

Shortly after take-off, the pilot contacted the tower to say they were having engine issues. The plane landed right behind Dobie High School's 9th Grade Campus and stopped in two backyards, clipping the fencing but narrowly missing the houses. No one was hurt in the crash.
