Sadly the Vintage Wings Corsair C-GVWC went off the side of the runway and into a ditch at Gatineau on 3rd July resulting in an injured pilot and a rather bent airframe. Injuries are reported as a broken nose and rib so with luck he is back home already. The Corsair will take rather more fettling... https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/226774

Pilots as ok as can be ,best result really.Now it will be up to the money and engineers to see to the airframe if it is repairable.

Sad to see but also glad it wasn't worse. Best wishes to the pilot for a speedy recovery.
