Plane crashes in Port Perry

DAN CEARNS The Standard

SCUGOG: A plane crashed and was destroyed in Port Perry on Saturday, May 18th.

“On May 18, at approximately 10:35 am local time, an advanced P92 Echo ultralight aircraft with two occupants on board lost engine power after takeoff. The pilot performed a forced landing in a field, during which the aircraft was severely damaged. A post-impact fire subsequently occurred, that consumed most of the aircraft. We did not deploy any investigators to the scene of the accident,” Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) media relations coordinator Hugo Fontaine told The Standard.

The incident was then declared a “Class 5 investigation” by the TSB.

“As per the Occurrence Classification Policy (Appendix C), Class 5 occurrences are not subject to comprehensive investigations followed by an investigation report. However, data on Class 5 occurrences are recorded in suitable scope for possible future safety analysis, statistical reporting, or archival purposes,” Mr. Fontaine explained.

The Durham Regional Police Service responded to the incident, however DRPS spokesperson Sergeant Joanne Bortoluss only was able to confirm they “no longer have any involvement,” in the case.

Neither the DRPS nor the TSB provided any information on injuries.
