Plane Crashes Into Dyes Inlet

CKFR responded to reports of an airplane that had crash landed into Dyes Inlet on August 6th at 5:40 pm. Crews responding near the area (on land) reported seeing an aircraft, upside down, in the water and numerous civilian boats surrounding it. CKFR placed Marine 51 in the water and was able to confirm the pilot was safely on board a civilian vessel and only had minor facial injuries. Marine 7 (Port Orchard Police Boat) also responded and brought the pilot aboard their boat before attaching to the plane to tow it to the Silverdale boat ramp. Once it was near the shore a boom was placed around it to contain any leakage and a excavator was brought in to remove the aircraft.
