A Buffalo Airways C-46 Commando airplane crashed while making an emergency landing in Deline, N.W.T..

Four crew members were on board at the time. An official at the Deline airport told CBC that nobody was injured in the incident.

The cargo flight was on its way from Yellowknife to Norman Wells, said Chris Krepski with the Transportation Safety Board, when it experienced engine failure and diverted to Deline.

Krepski said the aircraft landed without its landing gear down.

The TSB is not at the scene but is gathering information.

"In any case when there's an occurrence we gather some initial information and we might ask if the first responders might have any information to share," Krepski said. "We use that and then assess the information and we proceed to determine what the next steps will be."

Buffalo Airways said it is not commenting.

The N.W.T. Department of Transportation is also aware of the incident.
