Russell RCMP responded to a report of a crash at the Russell airport about 9:30 a.m. Sunday. Officers found an overturned Cessna Model 182P a half-kilometre south of the runway. There was no fire or smoke, RCMP report.

The pilot, a 61-year-old man, and a 56-year-old female passenger, both from the RM of Miniota, and an 83-year-old female passenger from the Town of Miniota, sustained non-life threatening injuries and were taken to hospital.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada will continue the investigation. There is nothing criminal in nature in relation to this incident.
