THE REPORTER, News Staff,

The pilot of a crop-duster, a small aircraft used to spray agriculture fields, is lucky to be alive after he experienced mechanical failure and was forced to land the plane in More Tomorrow Village on Monday. The plane burst into flames shortly after it was put down in a field, but the pilot escaped unhurt.

Police sources say that Mennonite farmer Henry Plett, while not injured, was left shaken up by the crash, which occurred at around 9:15am.

On Monday, at the routine Police press briefing, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Joseph Myvett, who heads the National Crimes Investigation Branch, stated that “the area was visited by Police and representatives from Civil Aviation who upon arrival met Plett.”

The matter is currently under investigation by the Civil Aviation Department.
