The incident happened at around 1 p.m. on Turf Lake.

According to Kevin Dean, a district fire chief with the Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency, the pilot was coming from the eastern part of the province and was headed to Boston when the plane lost power.

“He was going to bring it into Stanfield but didn’t make it,” Dean said.

Dean described the scene as a “rough landing,” but a successful one. He said the pilot was uninjured and the plane had “minimal damage.”

“We actually put a boat in the water, went out, got the pilot to shore,” he said.

The RCMP and Transportation Safety Board of Canada will now investigate the incident.
