Another Air-Craft Crash In Southern Alberta - This One Sends Occupants To Hospital

 
 
CLARESHOLM:   The Transportation Safety Board is investigating the second air crash in our region in less than 2-weeks. 

A single-engine Piper Warrior went down shortly after 4 p-m Monday, in a wooded area of the Porcupine Hills, about 30 kilometres west of Claresholm.

According to Claresholm RCMP, the plane was rented from the Excel Flight Centre in Lethbridge for a
"joy ride" over the area.  In the course of a flight over Claresholm, the plane lost altitude and the pilot couldn't pull out.  The pilot and two passengers were taken to hospital. One passenger was transported by air ambulance to Calgary while the other two people were sent to Claresholm hospital. RCMP are withholding names and the condition of those on board has not been released.

On August 26th, a chopper owned by Mustang helicopters of Blackfalds, was transporting forestry workers when it developed mechanical failure on landing.  The pilot over-shot the landing pad and the helicopter came down on its right side70-kilometres north of Coleman at the The Gap forestry fire base along Highway-40.

Fortunately, the pilot and four-passengers were treated for only minor injuries.
