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.

The plane had a flight plan filed to fly from Tober­mory to the Kitch­ener Water­loo Air­port.
