One wheel of the plane slipped into the hole, which, according to witnesses, was no bigger than a sheet of 4×8 plywood.
There is no word yet on possible damage to the plane.
Airport Communications Manager Lindsay Cotter says both the Airport Authority and the RCMP are conducting investigations into the cause of the sink hole. They will also be trying to establish who is responsible for the repair of the apron, and if needed, any repairs to the aircraft.
