Pilot safe after float plane flips in Dyes Inlet

Pilot was only person on board, cause of crash is unknown at this time

A pilot suffered a minor facial injury after his float plane flipped over in Dyes Inlet Tuesday evening. He was the only person aboard the plane, according to Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue.

The plane was towed into the Silverdale Boat Launch, CKFR officials said.

Around 6 p.m. CKFR crews responded to the scene off of Chico Way. Four civilian boats were around the plane attempting to help keep it afloat. The pilot was rescued to a civilian boat while a 27-foot motorboat attached to the upside down plane in efforts to keep it from sinking, according to CKFR.

The cause of the crash is currently unknown. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
