A small aircraft taking off from Buttonville Airport in Markham
to Kingston Airport crashed about
3 to 4 nautical miles from Kingston Airport.
A total of 7 people was on board,
including two children and 1 pilot
were killed in the crash.
Some experts believe that the event may be related to the weather.
When local police received a report that the plane crashed,
they rushed to the scene to investigate.
Rescuers were summoned to search areas
on Creekford Road and Bayridge Drive
south of Highway 401 and Gardiners Road.
Due to the remoteness of the crash site,
police officers did not find the scene 50 minutes after the incident.
Online information shows that
Piper PA-32 can carry up to 1 pilot and up to 6 passengers.
This type of aircraft is propelled by a 6-cylinder single engine
and can reach a maximum speed of 280 kilometers per hour.
