Three float planes were damaged early Friday morning after a suspect tried to steal a Seair aircraft from the Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre.
Police said someone reported a man trying to steal the plane from the Seair terminal around 3:30 a.m. PT.
A statement said the suspect crashed the aircraft into a Harbour Air plane in the process. A second Harbour Air plane was also damaged, bringing the total to three. The Seair plane lost an entire wing, while a wing on the Harbour Air plane was badly bent in the middle, its tip hanging down toward the water.
Seair and Harbour Air are around the corner from one another at the downtown terminal.
Vancouver police Const. Tania Visintin said no one was hurt. She said no arrests have been made and investigators are still on scene.
Harbour Air said early flights were temporarily rerouted to the company’s terminal at YVR in Richmond but normal service has since resumed.
Harbour Air flies between Vancouver, parts of Vancouver Island, Whistler, Seattle, the Sunshine Coast and the Gulf Islands.
Seair was rerouting its passengers to its terminal at YVR as police investigated the incident. Just before 10 a.m., regularly scheduled service resumed.
The company flies between Vancouver and Nanaimo, as well as the Gulf Islands.
