Cookman FOLGORE S 5 T, C-GBAR: Incident occurred March 08, 2015 in Surrey, British Columbia

A small experimental plane crashed landed in Surrey this morning, but the two people inside escaped without injury.

The plane went down on a dyke next to the Serpentine River near the King George airpark around 10:30 a.m.

According to Staff Sgt. M.A. Hedderson, two males from Port Coquitlam were inside the plane. They were taking off when the plane dipped to the right, with the landing gear eventually catching in the bushes. It was reportedly upside down, but crews were able to turn it over before fuel leaked out.

There was visible damage to the plane, and the Transportation Safety Board has been made aware of the crash.
