usually with stories like this, when they interview the witness on site, there is a liquor store in the background.
Lansdowne street runs east and west, our airports(CYPQ)main runway runs east and west. The airport is about 5 miles south of Lansdowne street. I don't know what this guys heading was but the main damage to the street is west of the crash. The aircraft ended up tail south. I wonder if he was looking for 09 at CYPQ.

My 172 was stolen once. But I was lucky. He left his billfold in a undamaged aircraft.

I am not the source of any information in this story and have no knowledge of the plane crash. I reside over 2000 miles from the incident and am no way connected to the crash report. I would appreciate removal of any information related to me in this story. If there is no retraction on the part of FlightAware in this matter I have consulted with my attorney for further action.
