Embrun man dies after plane crash near Saskatoon BY LIANNE LAHAIE

SASKATOON – A twin-engine plane carrying three men who worked for an Ottawa geological surveying company crashed into a sound barrier along a busy street in Saskatoon’s north end on Friday, April , killing an Embrun man. Now federal aviation safety investigators are piecing together details of the fatal crash to figure out why it happened. Dead is Iaroslav “Slava” Gorokhovski, 47, an Embrun resident who worked for Ottawabased Fugro Airborne Surveys. Gorokhovski and fellow Fugro employees, Brock Gorrell, 57,

of Ottawa, and Cameron Sutcliffe, 42, of Calgary were in a twin-engine light plane doing an aerial resource survey assignment on an area east of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Gorrell and Sutcliffe were pilot and co-pilot and escaped with minor injuries from the crash. They were treated at Royal University Hospital and later released. At the time, the three had been in the air for less than four hours and preliminary reports indicate the 30-year-old plane still had lots of fuel when it developed trouble in one engine, forcing an emergency landing procedure. The second engine failed while the plane was en route back to the John G. Diefenbaker International

Airport, five kilometres away. The plane came down just before 6:30 p.m., skimming a condominium building according to witnesses to the crash, and then hit a roadside sound barrier wall on the east side of Wanuskewin Road, near the intersection with 5st Street, in the city’s north end. The wreckage of the downed plane was removed from the roadway over the weekend and taken to a hangar at the Saskatoon airport where analysts from the federal Transport Safety Board (TSB) are now examining it as part of their investigation. Gorokhovski had been employed with Fugro Airborne Surveys since 998. He leaves behind a wife and children.

Operation costs in this year’s budget include a 3.5 per cent increase for garbage and

recycling collection and a 2.3 per cent increase for policing. Much of the capital works budget, 25 per cent, will go toward paving Domain Road, Villeneuve Road, Campbell Road, from the intersection of County Road 9 to the end, and Concession 0, which is the boundary road in Pendleton. The capital works budget also includes money for landscaping improvements at Eventurel Park in Alfred, culvert work along Mill Street, and a new tandem truck for public works.
