That location is the ECA R235/29.17 or LVK airport R141/10.75. At the time of the incident acft was in contact with NCT Grove sector recieving flight following. Review of radar data was conducted to with geography maps on to help determine the location as accurately as possible. During review of the radar data there were no unidentified targets observed in the reported area of the incident. Pilot inspected aircraft after landing at CNO. Aircraft had sustained two gouges to the lower portion of the nose cowl about 3 inches long and deep enough to take off the first layer of fiberglass.
