Plane crash in Richmond

Turn on your television or radio because news departments all over the city are leaping into action to cover something other than Roberto Luongo. A two person plane that took off from Vancouver International Airport this afternoon has crashed into the ninth floor of a Richmond apartment building. So far the CBC is reporting two elderly people injuried, but there does not as of yet seem to be any fatalities [cbc].

Since this is going to make good televison, what with the image of a plan crashed into the side of an apartment building being a pretty compelling image, it’ll be all over the news for the rest of the day. Probably will make the National as well, so if like me you’ve been trying to win Peter Mansbridge’s heart I’d dress up in your sexy best and head down to catch the camera’s eye.

Update: The pilot of the plane has died and two others remain injured. Nobody’s name has been released to the public yet, and the plane is still inside the now evacuated building [cbc].
