Incident at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan


1996-03-18: The pilot and one passenger were enroute Minot, North Dakota via Lumsden, SK, from Cooking Lake, Alberta. The aircraft apparently had been recently purchased and the aircraft was being ferried to the U.S.A. under American marks N13055. Approximately 45 miles southwest of Saskatoon, the pilot advised Saskatoon Terminal that he was experiencing a fuel problem and was diverting to Saskatoon. Enroute to Saskatoon, the pilot requested information about landing fields in the immediate area. There was a loss of engine power due to fuel exhaustion and the pilot force landed the Piper Tri-Pacer into a field. There was no damage to the aircraft, nor injuries to the occupants. TSB are investigating.
