The Canadian Military and C.A.S.A.R.A have initiated a major search for a missing aircraft. The aircraft is a homebuilt and disappeared while flying between Vavenby B.C. and Langley B.C.
CYKA is headquarters for this search and now involves approximately 10 C.A.S.A.R.A aircraft and 4 griffon helicopters, 2 Buffalo and 1 C-130 Hercules military aircraft . Several other Military SAR aircraft are expected to join in the search later today.
The aircraft suposedly left Vavenby without filing a flightplan.

After flying for 2 weeks searching over 9500 square miles, the search has been called off and DND and CASARA have returned to their respective homes, however, they did not leave empty handed. The search teams were able to locate 2 previous crash sites that were unreported (no victims in crash site), and had a report of a man finding prop pieces near Hope that turned out to be a hoax (charges pending).
