Emergency crews and RCMP were called out after a plane overshot the runway at the Altona Airport in the RM of Rhineland on Aug. 20.

A Piper aircraft had tried to land on a grass landing strip at the airport around 8:30 p.m.

It continued travelling after touching down on the landing strip before coming to an abrupt stop in a drainage ditch near the far west side of the runway, said RCMP.

The 70-year-old pilot and a 65-year-old passenger were transported to hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries, said RCMP.

Alcohol is not considered a factor in the crash.

RCMP and the Transportation Safety Board continue to investigate the cause of the incident.
