Pilot killed in northern Alberta air show plane crash, Report

The sole occupant of a small plane performing in the Smith Fall Fair in northern Alberta has died after the aircraft crashed.

Just after noon Saturday, Slave Lake officers were called to the fair after an incident at the air show.

Two small planes were performing acrobatic manoeuvres when one of the planes disappeared, RCMP said in a release. The missing plane was found an hour later.

The unidentified pilot, who was the only person on board, died at the scene.

On Twitter, RCMP asked anyone who may have been filming the air show around noon to contact police.

The Transportation Safety Board has been contacted and its investigation is ongoing.

The hamlet of Smith, Alta., is about 180 kilometres northwest of Edmonton.
