Fort Vermilion – Wetaskiwin
Crew on board:
Pax on board:
The aircraft was landing on runway 30 at Wetaskiwin Airport following an IFR mail flight from Fort Vermilion. During the landing, the crew lost sight of the runway in a thin layer of dense fog that covered the airport. They aborted the landing, and the aircraft settled into a field about ½ mile northwest of the airport. Both pilots sustained serious injuries and the aircraft was damaged beyond repair. The flight crew used a cell phone to call for help. The emergency locator transmitter (ELT) activated during impact.
