Small plane crashes near Lac du Bonnet
Two men are in hospital with undetermined injuries after a plane crash about 10 km east of Lac du Bonnet.
RCMP said the single engine float plane went down in a field shortly after takeoff around 9 a.m.
The Transportation Safety Board's Peter Hildebrand said the crash presents challenges to investigators.
"The one thing that happened here, the floats were broken off during the landing. That’s why the airplane is sitting right down on its belly, so to speak," Hildebrand said. "That’s going to make it a little tougher because we can’t look at the bottom of [the plane] very well."
Nieghbours said that the owner of the plane is an experienced pilot, however, it is not yet clear if the owner was the one flying the plane at the time of the crash.
Police are still at the scene, and the Transportation Safety Board continues to investigate.
