Aircraft are back in the air this morning in search of a missing plane in Southern Labrador.
The Piper twin-engine aircraft operated by North Wind Aviation in Happy Valley-Goose Bay has been missing since mid-morning Wednesday.
But poor weather has severely restricted search efforts for the two occupants - a pilot and passenger.
With the weather starting to clear, two search and rescue Cormorant helicopters are in the air this morning. Several other aircraft remain on standby.
The plane was flying from Goose Bay to Cartwright. It was also scheduled to make a stop in Black Tickle.
The pilot radioed his intentions to land at Cartwright at about 10:30 a.m., but the plane did not arrive.
It's believed the plane was about 110 kilometres from Cartwright when the radio message was received.
It's been learned the plane was not carrying an emergency locator beacon.
The search area is said to be rugged, with hills and heavy forests.

Geographic location: Goose Bay, Southern Labrador, Happy Valley Black Tickle
