Upside down Stinson

Recent unfortunate accident in Saskatchewan. I have no other details.

I think there is a "Hoskins" caption lurking here.

Update: I found an article in the local North Battleford newspaper:

The two people piloting the plane walked away unscathed after the crash, Maze later learned from his uncle, who spoke to them.The plane appears to be a Stinson Reliant, a popular single-engine aircraft first manufactured in 1933.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada was aware of the situation and was collecting information, but won’t conduct a full investigation, according to spokesperson Chris Krepski.

Begs for a caption, e.g. "I thought the green was just algae in the lake".

Judging from the photo of the two young lads I'd say inexperience let them down.

And they don't appear to show any regret. Unbeliveable. They are even smiling.

If an engine failure, they did a good landing.
