Fatal plane crash

By Staff, Selkirk Journal

Selkirk RCMP received a report of a plane crash near Highway 8, between McPhillips Road and Parkdale Road Sept. 7, just after 4:30 a.m.


When officers responded, it was necessary to close Highway 8 in that area as debris from the wreckage of the Beech one-engine model A23-19 aircraft was blocking the road.


A 29-year-old male from Thunder Bay, Ontario died in the crash.


It has now been determined that the plane was taken without the owner’s consent. The deceased was a licenced pilot and known to the owner.


The RCMP and Transportation Safety Board are working together on this continuing investigation.
