A single engine plane crash-landed at the Fort St. James airport on Oct. 8.
At 5:47 p.m., RCMP received a call of a plane crash at the airport, and responded along with other emergency services.
The pilot reported having an engine failure while flying south from Swan Lake in the Yukon.
But a few hours into the flight, the engine stopped, and the Fort St. James airport happened to be nearby.
On floats, the pilot was just looking for somewhere grassy and so he was aiming the plane for the grass alongside the airstrip, but clipped a wood pile as he came in, leading to a pile up of the plane.
The pilot, however, was uninjured and he was the lone occupant of the plane.
The late 1950’s Cessna 180 plane was severely damaged, and the pilot estimated the cost of the damages at around $60,000.
The Transportation Safety Board is continuing to investigate the incident.
