Crash landing in Delta

A small aircraft crashed in the Burns Bog environmental preserve in Delta Wednesday night around 8:30 p.m.

The RCMP helicopter Air One was called in to help extract the three occupants of the single-engine plane from a remote area of the bog when fire and ambulance vehicles were unable to drive in.

The trio were taken to Delta Hospital and released.

They did not seem to be injured.

The aircraft was flying in the area of Delta's Boundary Bay Airport at the time.

No official cause of the accident has been determined, but initial reports suggest the aircraft may have run out of fuel.

Transportation Safety Board officials were expected to be back at the site Thursday morning to continue the investigation.
