Glider plane crashes into building in Langley, B.C.
An air cadet has been injured after crashing a glider onto the top of a commercial building in Langley, B.C., east of Vancouver.
The plane crashed in a residential area, at the intersection of 208th Street and 56th Street.
Bill Yearwood, a Transportation Safety Board spokesperson, said the cadet was on a training exercise.
"We understand that this cadet in the glider lost track of the airport and did a forced landing," he said.
"Unfortunately, he ended up on the building and our information at this time is that his injuries appear to be minor."
The Transportation Safety Board is leading the investigation into the crash.
Emergency crews remain at the scene, including the Langley city fire department, as they try to remove the glider.
