A Courtenay pilot’s flight came to an abrupt end Tuesday morning as his plane landed off the runaway at the Courtenay Airpark, but walked away without injury.
Courtenay Fire Chief Don Bardonnex said upon landing, the private plane hydroplaned across the runway, slid over a patch of grass and into some blackberry bushes.
He confirmed the pilot did not suffer any injuries.
“There was not even much damage to the plane. Everything held together and the props are in good condition.”
The plane was towed away shortly after the incident.
