Small aircraft makes emergency landing in field near Vancouver, B.C.
By The Canadian Press
MAPLE RIDGE, B.C. – Police say a small aircraft has made an emergency landing in a field outside of Vancouver.
Ridge Meadows RCMP say only the pilot was on board when the plane came down near 203 Street and Golden Ears Way on Wednesday afternoon.
Transportation Safety Board spokesman Chris Krepski says the plane is an Osprey 2 amateur-built aircraft.
He says the safety board will be investigating, but will not send anyone out to the scene.
Mounties say the pilot is being treated for minor injuries.
There’s no word yet on why the emergency landing was necessary.
Last week, a plane with a damaged wing landed on a busy boulevard in Calgary, just days after another small aircraft landed on a highway median in B.C.’s Interior.
No injuries were reported in either incident.
