Belleisle Man Escapes Injury in Plane Crash

A man from Belleisle escaped injury after his ultralight plane crashed during an attempted takeoff on Friday. RCMP say the plane was trying to take off from an icy surface when it failed to clear the tree line and one of the aircraft’s wings got caught in a tree. Pilot Doug Desruisseau was able to climb out of the plane on his own and was checked out at a hospital in Saint John as a precaution.
