Another plane crash. But, this time in Nanaimo.

Just after 7 pm today a private amphibious airplane took off in Nanaimo and crashed on to the golf course in Cassidy, across the airport.

Bill Yearwood with the Transportation Safety Board explains the investigation is just beginning – and there’s no indication as to what may have caused this crash for the two people on board.

“Sadly, both persons on board died or lost their lives.”

Yearwood explains for now the investigation still remains very much in the hands of the coroner’s service.
