The two men, ages 25 and 33, were flying in a single-engine Cessna 150 when it encountered mechanical failure, police say.

“The pilot was able to successfully land the aircraft in a field,” Const. Ed Sanchuk said in a Periscope post. “My hat goes off to that pilot. He did a wonderful job.”

Sanchuk says Transport Canada has been notified of the crash and police will remain on the scene until the aircraft is removed from the field.
