The World : Canada Plane Crash Kills 8

June 16, 1986

A Canadian military plane crashed in the mountains of western Alberta, killing all eight aboard, officials reported. The twin-engine De Havilland Twin Otter, with three military fliers and five civilians aboard, crashed about 40 miles west of Calgary while searching for a light plane missing with two aboard since June 6. On the day that plane disappeared, a single-engine aircraft searching for it crashed into Mt. Lougheed, near the British Columbia border, killing the three people aboard.
