Canola causes plane to flip over
A pilot suffered minor injuries after crash-landing a crop duster in a canola field in east-central Saskatchewan on Tuesday.
It happened around 5:30 p.m. CST just outside the community of Quill Lake, the RCMP said.
The plane had just taken off when it ran into engine trouble and had to make an emergency landing in a farmer’s field.
However, canola got caught in the landing gear and caused the plane to nose over.
It came to rest upside down.
The pilot was taken to hospital in Humboldt with minor injuries.
The Transportation Safety Board of Canada will be responsible for investigating the accident, the RCMP said.
