Red Lake Crash

November 12, 2013 by  

Red Lake Crash, The mayor of Red Lake says his town is devastated by the plane crash that killed five people there Sunday night.

Phil Vinet said Red Lake is a hub for air travel and, when something like this occurs, it affects the whole community.

“This isn’t a very large community. There’s 4,500 of us,” he said “We all have heavy hearts today. Very heavy.”

Vinet said he’s seen aviation incidents in Red Lake before, but nothing of this magnitude.

Two people survived the crash of the Bearskin Airlines twin-engine turboprop, about 500 kilometres northwest of Thunder Bay, just after 6:30 p.m. local time Sunday. The plane crashed on approach to the Red Lake airport and burst into flames.
