Plane flips at Tobermory Airport
A small plane sustained significant damage and the four people on board sustained minor injuries after it slid off the runway at the Tobermory airport on Sunday evening.
It is the second plane crash reported at the airport this year, after on Feb. 26 a plane flipped while being landed on the snowy runway. The Cambridge man piloting the plane was uninjured.
In Sunday’s crash, which happened just before 8 p.m., the white Piper Warrior was attempting to take off from the airport on Warner Bay Road, when the pilot, a 50-year-old Kitchener man, decided to abort the takeoff, Bruce Peninsula OPP said in a news release.
The plane slid sideways off the end of the runway and came to rest on its roof.
Police were assisted at the scene by the Northern Bruce Peninsula Fire Department and Bruce County paramedics. All four of those in the airplane were treated at the scene, the news release said.
The plane had a flight plan filed to fly from Tobermory to the Kitchener Waterloo Airport.
