One man was treated in hospital and later released after the aircraft he was piloting crashed at the Hanna Airport northeast of Calgary.
Just before 1:30 a.m. on July 30, Hanna RCMP, EMS and the local fire department responded to a report of a small plane crash at the airport, RCMP said in a release. The male pilot — also the lone occupant — was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
RCMP, working with the Transportation Safety Board of Canada and the Department of National Defence, investigated the crash and determined the cause to be non-criminal, the RCMP said Tuesday.
The plane stopped approximately 50 metres from the runway and was scheduled to be removed on Tuesday.
