BC Float Plane Propeller Falls Off
On June 24 a Beaver float plane took off from Powell River, B.C. and made an emergency landing in Halfmoon Bay when its propeller fell off.
There was minor damage to the pontoons but otherwise the plane was intact.
June 24 at approximately 1:40 p.m., Sunshine Coast RCMP and Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCMSAR) were dispatched. The downed plane was towed to a dock with the respondents and a local boater.
The pilot and three passengers were uninjured.
The incident may have been the result of an engineering malfunction.
