Plane piece was delivered to wrong place, not dumped

Plane piece claimed

UPDATE: 8:44 p.m.

Multiple Castanet readers have identified the front part of an airplane found on a local forestry road as a Convair 580.

It also appears that another part of an airplane has been seen throughout the Kelowna area.

The middle part of a plane is parked on a trailer on Beetlestone Drive off of Benvoulin Road.

One resident told Castanet it arrived on May 21 and hasn't moved since.


ORIGINAL: 5:15 p.m.

If you lost the front part of your airplane, it's sitting on a Kelowna forestry road.

Castanet received a photo of what appears to be the front of a plane located at the side of the gravel road. The photos were taken within the past 48 hours and the person who shared the photos with us says it's still there.

"I went to Myra Canyon when I heard that the plane had been dumped... it looks like it's true," said the tipster, who did not want to be identified.

The photos show the cockpit with a Canadian flag on the side and part of the fuselage of what looks like a large plane. Both the cockpit and part of the fuselage appear to be intact.

How and why the plane landed on the road in its present state, however, remains a mystery.
