The Transportation Safety Board (TSB) has finished its assessment and will not be further investigating this week’s plane crash at the Merritt Airport.

The crash, reported on Monday, involved a man in his 60s who had just moved to Merritt and was transferring his plane to the Merritt Airport.

The man was found after a missing person report was filed, and it’s believed the pilot was trapped in the cockpit of his plane for several hours before police found him.

The Merritt Fire Department extracted the pilot using the jaws of life and he was transported to the hospital in Kamloops with serious injuries.
