Quesnel, B.C. – Emergency crews responded to a small plane crash at the Quesnel Airport this afternoon.

Sgt Darren Dodge with the Quesnel RCMP says the plane, a Beechcraft single engine, was found resting on the runway with it’s gear collapsed. He says there was no sign of fire.

Luckily the pilot, a male from Quesnel and the lone occupant of the plane, was uninjured. It happened at around 2:00 p.m.

Dodge says the RCMP will be assisting the Transportation Safety Board with it’s investigation.


“Were” uninjureD 😉. I saw 7 police vehicles respond but not one ambulance or firetruck

No, it’s actually “was” uninjured, as stated in the article. The pilot was uninjured. Thankfully.

All kinds of planes have landing gear mishaps, often it does not lower itself into landing position or it will not fully deploy. On some airliners it may be the front wheels or one assembly on one side only! Some day in the future some engineer will design landing gear that will be 100% reliable 100% of the time! He/she will collect a Nobel prize and become filthy rich. They made it to the Moon, so what seems to be the problem?

Thanks noisy. I stand corrected.
