Montreal plane crash

Montreal plane crash

A Cessna 172 aircraft took off from a small airport just outside of Montreal last Saturday towing a marriage proposal banner.

What should have been a joyful moment ended up in tragedy.

Shortly after 6 p.m., the banner fell into the St. Lawrence River; shortly after that, the plane went down, crashed and burst into flames in Parc Dieppe, which is located near the Habitat 67 complex and not far from the de la Concorde Bridge. There were two people onboard the plane when it crashed; one person was killed and the other was sent to hospital with injuries of an unknown nature.

In an interview with CBC News, Chris Krepski, a spokesman for the Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB), stated that TSB officials did receive information that the small plane was experiencing engine trouble; however, the exact cause of the crash has not been determined, and the investigation is continuing.

Jean Lapointe, a former commercial airline pilot and civil aviation expert, told CBC News that the Cessna 172 is regarded as a relatively safe model of aircraft; however, the combination of the added weight and resistance due to the banner plus the engine trouble, could have contributing factors that lead to the crash.

“In general, it’s experienced pilots that do this work. For there to be a fire … the fuel system had to break, which shows that the impact was significant,” he further stated.
