TSB Releases Report On 2017 Plane Crash Near Revelstoke

The Transportation Safety Board says the weather was deteriorating before a small plane en route to Alberta crashed near Revelstoke in November 2017.

The wreckage and the remains of 28-year-old pilot Dominic Neron and his 31-year-old girlfriend Ashley Bourgeault were not found until last September.

The safety board says in its report that the plane left Penticton for a flight to Edmonton along a known visual flight rules route along the Trans-Canada Highway from Revelstoke toward Rogers Pass when it went down while flying over mountainous terrain.

It says flying in deteriorating weather conditions is challenging and the pilot didn't obtain a weather briefing from Nav Canada before departure.
