Details are just coming in.
Possibly 6 people on the plane. I'll post some links to local media.
The police are reporting it was a 4 seater.
They still haven't found the plane, but have found pieces of one.
It's raining and foggy here.
Search Begins for Small Plane in South-End
Small plane missing near Ottawa airport
Ottawa Fire Services say it’s looking for a small plane that was on its final approach at the Ottawa airport Wednesday evening before air traffic control lost track of it.
Fire crews are looking within a three-kilometre radius of the airport. There’s no word on how many people were on board the four-seat Cessna.
The plane has been found just behind the RCMP head quarters off Leikin Dr.
Well it can’t be a Cessna 172. It only seats four. Unless they put some kids in the cargo area behind the back seat.
I’ve flown the Cardinal. It’s a four place so I don’t know where they came up with six people in it.
Thanks fanfan for the ping.
I appreciate it.
News to me.
Thanks for the update RansomOttawa.
Skydancer, Ottawa police first described what they were looking for a plane with 4-6 “souls onboard”. I was listening to the scanner.
I used to work in the same small complex with this guy.
I saw him all the time in the parking lot, and in the restaurant.
Let's do the time warp again.
