  • Hard landing on water of Inland Air Charters Ltd. de Havilland DHC-2 Mk. I (Beaver), C-FJOM at Kitkatla, British Columbia on 24 May 2016

    Released on

    The Inland Air Charters Ltd. de Havilland DHC-2 Mk. I Beaver aircraft (registration C FJOM, serial number 1024) was conducting a crosswind landing at Kitkatla Water Aerodrome, British Columbia, with the pilot and 6 passengers on board.

One passenger sustained serious injuries, and the remaining passengers and the pilot sustained minor injuries. The aircraft was not equipped with an emergency locator transmitter. There was no post-impact fire.
