Police warn small planes away from Princeton airport

RCMP are warning planes away from the Princeton airport.

Well, really small planes anyhow.

According to Sergeant Barry Kennedy police were called to the airport Monday afternoon when a manager there noticed someone standing on the runway operating what looked like a remote control plane.

The person was gone when police arrived.

“It does pose a huge hazard if pilots don’t know they are in the area,” said Kennedy. “The plane will just line up to approach.”
