Small plane makes unscheduled landing in Gatineau park
All 3 people on board were unhurt
Three people escaped injury Saturday afternoon after their small plane made an unscheduled landing in a Gatineau, Que., park.
The plane touched down in Parc de la Baie at around 5 p.m., according to the Gatineau Police Service.
Paramedics said the three people on board — one pilot and two passengers — were unhurt.
According to the Canadian Civil Aircraft Registry, the plane is owned by Ottawa Biplane Adventures and is based out of the Ottawa-Rockcliffe Airport.
Local authorities told Radio-Canada they believe the plane suffered a mechanical issue.
Gatineau police say they're now trying to contact the Transportation Safety Board of Canada, which has a mandate to investigate incidents like Saturday's unexpected landing.
