The Sûreté du Québec confirmed this evening at 7:57 p.m., that a Cessna jet, plane crashed into a field eight kilometres off highway 30.

“All we can confirm is that we fear for the lives of two men. At the moment, we are unable to say whether it is the pilot and his passenger or whether other persons were on board the aircraft,” explains Hélène Nepton in a press release, of the Sûreté du Quebec.  The two men later passed in hospital.

Around 6:45 pm, a call was made to 911 reporting the presence of a Cessna aircraft in difficulty in the Les Cèdres region. All emergency services were immediately dispatched.

This story is ongoing and will be updated as news is released by the police.

  1. A slight precision on this story… a Cessna 150 is essentially the Honda Civic of the aviation world… it is quite possibly the furthest thing from a “Jet” you could have, and is powered by a four stroke piston engine (similar to that used in some older cars or trucks) and NOT a jet engine. You could refer to the plane in question as simply a “Cessna aircraft” or as a “Cessna 150 plane” or even just a “general aviation aircraft”.

    The aviation community is full of a bunch of nerds who are very anal about terminology and who get cranky at little errors like this in stories.
