Two found dead in wreck­age of plane crash

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Two men have died in a small plane crash in Man­i­toba that took sev­eral hours for searchers to lo­cate due to poor weather. RCMP say the sin­gleengine Cessna took off on Thurs­day from St. An­drews, north of Win­nipeg, and was re­ported late at its des­ti­na­tion in Win­kler. Po­lice, along with a Cana­dian Armed Forces search-and-res­cue team, even­tu­ally found the wreck­age in a field near Brunk­ild, about 45 kilo­me­tres south­west of Win­nipeg early Fri­day. “Un­for­tu­nately, there were two males on board — a 60-year-old and a 41-year-old — and both were de­ceased when we lo­cated the plane,” an RCMP spokes­woman said.
