Prince George, B.C. – Prince George RCMP tell Opinion 250 that a light plane has flipped at the Prince George airport.

An RCMP spokesman says the incident occurred within the past hour, although he’s not sure of the exact timing. He says it is not believed anyone was injured. Police have an officer on scene, but they have not reported back to the detachment.

Prince George Fire-Rescue says none of its crews were sent to the airport, rather the airport fire department responded.

Calls to the airport have not been answered as yet. The type of airplane involved was not known to the police official we spoke with.

The Transportation Safety Board will be called in to investigate, as is the case with any aircraft incident.
