Plane clips building at Prince Albert Airport: No injuries were suffered

Cariboo Air Dash 8 airplane, paNOW.

An airplane clipped a terminal building at the Prince Albert Airport yesterday when the plane was attempting to move into a parking position.

“All we know is that the plane’s wing tip clipped the overhang on the terminal building, so it’s very minor damage,” said Gail Summerfelt, manager of the Prince Albert airport.

She added the part of the building hit was just a crawlspace and was not structurally important.

“I don’t know about the plane because I’m not a plane expert, but very minor damage to the building. And it will be under investigation.”

Sommerfelt acknowledged that there were people in the building at the time, but no one was injured and there were no passengers on the plane at the time of the incident.

“It was moving slow, like a turtle and it just grazed the corner of the building. Like I said, not very much damage.”

The plane involved was a North Cariboo Air Dash 8.
