The Plane Truth

Reports this morning that an airplane had crashed into the Atlantic near Maine's border with New Brunswick were greatly exaggerated.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Dana Hart said a person driving on a highway reported that a single-engine plane appeared to be having difficulty, and smoke was coming from it.

The witness did not see a crash, and there were no reports of missing planes in the area and no signs of a crash, Hart said.

Later Wednesday, the search for wreckage was called off.

"There is no missing aircraft and no evidence of any crash," Maurice Landry, spokesman for the federal Transport Canada agency, told The Associated Press. [Link]
