Two Mounted Police Officers Killed in Air Crash
On August 15, 2000, a Cessna Caravan with 2 Mounties on board crashed at Teslin
Lake, on the Yukon-BC border. Killed in the crash were 49-year-old Sergeant Ed Mobley of
Prince Rupert, B.C., pilot of the aircraft, and 48-year-old Special Constable Tim Nicholson of
Ottawa, the flight engineer. The official crash report can be seen

officers used to be linked below, but are no longer online.
The Caravan, one of the most sophisticated bushplanes in the world, was on
amphibious floats, enabling it to land on either water or land. It was one of four in the
RCMP Air Division. The aircraft and crew were based at Price Rupert,
British Columbia - the others are currently at Vancouver, Regina and Ottawa. A photo of a
similar Caravan can be seen below.
