Pilot suffers minor injuries during crash at Duncan air field
The pilot of a home-made airplane suffered what firefighters said are minor injuries during Sunday's crash at Duncan's air strip.
Details about how the high-wing model of plane was wrecked at the small airstrip's southern end were under investigation at press time.
One Duncan volunteer firefighter said on scene the pilot was "walking and talking" after the mishap in sunny, calm conditions.
The plane was a crumpled wreck, near where the strip drops into gravel pit.
Fire crews soaked the scene with foam to prevent any fire hazards.
The incident was also attended by paramedics and RCMP.
The identity of the pilot, the plane's sole occupant, was unavailable at press time.
