Very Sad.    At 1:06pm N64030 requests a "Maintenance Box Pattern" and is cleared for departure. The track shows them doing a several patterns over the airport at about 2100'. Later at 1:39pm N64030 comes on the radio and she says "N64030 I think we'll make a right turn at the shoreline this time and go up the coast a bit".  

N4677V went straight up the coast after departing SMO, and appears to be an instructional flight.

(This is the KSMO audio only, both aircraft departed out of the Delta following this to the mountains north)

Was there any more to the recording?  It seemed ATC advised them properly of the traffic and at least one pilot had the other in sight.  I don't get how this happens with both on flight following.  Sad.

The incident occurred in the Santa Monica mountains near Malibu Canyon after they left SMO's Class Delta and went north.  I don't think either had flight following, but can't say for certain.  I didn't hear SoCal hailing for either of them, (on my radio's at least.)  It is a local practice, and sightseeing area.  

UPDATE: Just went through the archives on one of my feeds, I found transmissions from N4677V at 3100' @ 4 minutes, and 3500' @ 1 minute prior to the crash, on the Malibu practice area frequency.  I amended the recording.
