Victims of plane crash identified

The two people were involved in the plane crash that took place at Trout Lake on April 11.

The victims of a plane crash near Trout Lake have been identified.

Lynndon Wayne Delisle, 58, and his wife Heather Lynn Delisle, 54, died after their plane went down in the mountains southeast of Revelstoke on Monday, April. 11.

The crash was discovered by a helicopter pilot with the CMH Galena heliskiing lodge, wrote lodge manager Mike Welch in an e-mail.

The Joint Rescue Communication Centre in Victoria received a report of the crash around 12 p.m. and dispatched a CC 115 Buffalo aircraft and a Cormorant helicopter from the air force base in Comox.

CMH’s pilot was asked to assist with the search since his smaller helicopter could fly lower into the valley. “He then grabbed two guides from the lodge, who were the first to respond on the ground,” wrote Welch.

They found the wreckage of the Rockwell 112B plane. Both passengers were found without vital signs, RCMP said.

The Delisles were on their way home to Wynard, Saskatchewan, from Kelowna.

The crash is being investigated by the BC Coroners Services and RCMP. The cause of the crash is not yet known.
