VANCOUVER – Two men are OK after the float plane they were in crashed off Galiano Island Monday afternoon.

A spokesperson for the Ganges Coast Guard on Saltspring Island says the owner and co-pilot of Ocean Air Floatplanes were in the plane performing a procedure when they had trouble during takeoff.

The float plane crashed near Montague Harbour on Galiano Island.

Both men in the plane were ejected. They were able to keep afloat by clinging to the plane in the water and were not injured in the incident.

They have both been rescued.
