Pilot being sued over collision

Paul Knapp is being taken to court by the wife of one of the men killed this past February

One of the pilots involved in a mid-air collision east of Mission last February where two people died is being sued.

Patti Hubble’s husband Donn died when his plane and Paul Knapp’s touched wings while formation flying, sending his aircraft into the Dewdney slough.

Surrey’s Patrick Lobsinger, who was flying with Hubble, died on scene, while Hubble passed away a short time later in hospital.

Knapp made an unscheduled landing in a farmers’ field a short distance from the slough.

The civil claim against Knapp, filed in the Supreme Court of B.C. Dec. 7, alleges he was negligent, and this caused or contributed to the collision.

The claims have yet to be proven in a court of law.
