    "
    A small group of soldiers, historians and park staff from J.D. Irving Ltd. gathered this week for a memorial ceremony at a remote crash site in the woods of central New Brunswick.

    They unveiled a plaque honouring two pilots who crashed their float plane in 1939 on a flight from Ottawa to Sydney, N.S., making them the first casualties suffered by the Royal Canadian Air Force in Canada during the Second World War.

    The aircraft flown by Warrant Officer II James Edgerton Doan and Cpl. David Alexander Rennie was to be used for anti-submarine patrols off the northeast coast of Nova Scotia.

    But the pair ran into engine troubles, and Delta 679 (sic - should be 673) was last spotted over Edmundston and Plaster Rock before it disappeared in dense forest.

    The fate of the two pilots was a mystery for 19 years, said Harold Wright, a local historian in Saint John who researched the crash."
