Police said the Air Saguenay plane went down in a wooded area on Sunday afternoon.

Authorities announced that all six people aboard had been found and their bodies handed over to the coroner's office. Local reports said four of the victims were British.

An Air Saguenay official said the Beaver seaplane was taking part in a routine sightseeing flight departing from Lac Long in Tadoussac, Quebec.

He said the flight was only supposed to last 20 minutes and the conditions were excellent when the plane crashed.
