B.C. Pilots identified after crash near Vancouver

The BC Coroners Service had identified the two pilots killed after a cargo plane crashed onto the North Shore Mountains this week.

Killed in the crash were Robert Brandt, aged 34, and Kevin Wang, aged 32, both residents of the Vancouver area. Brandt was the pilot of the twin-engine Swearingen SA-226 plane, while Wang was the co-pilot. The two were flying from Vancouver International Airport to Prince George for Carson Air when it was reported missing shortly after 7:00 a.m. on April 13th.

Following a massive search the downed craft was found in the North Shore mountains. Both men were deceased at the scene.

The BC Coroners Service would like to express thanks to North Shore Search and Rescue, North Vancouver RCMP detachment and the RCMP’s Emergency Response Team for their assistance in this difficult search and recovery.
