A man is dead after an ultralight plane crash just north of Lloydminster.
RCMP say the pilot was last seen practicing touch-and-go landings and takeoffs Sunday from a private airfield on his property.
His family contacted police when he didn't arrive at his destination. Search teams found the wreck 600 metres from his house.
The name of the pilot hasn't been released. Mounties say he was experienced, but not with this particular kind of plane.
An investigation is now underway into what caused the crash.
