weekend's downing of a small Cessna in Vancouver, B.C.

police and rescue crews who responded to witness reports that an
airplane had gone down Sunday afternoon.

ultra-light or a small plane that had crashed," said Corporal
Steven Han of the Surrey RCMP to the Canadian Press, "but after

suffered a full-size problem: engine failure.
