Kennedy Lake plane crash injures 3, TSB deploys investigators
The Transportation Safety Board says three people were in a plane that went down Wednesday on a lake northwest of Sudbury.
TSB inspector Peter Machete said the plane was attempting to land on Kennedy Lake to drop off supplies to a camp, when the pilot lost control and the plane collided with nearby terrain.
The people on board had minor injuries, and were able to get out on their own, he said.
"We did the field work yesterday, as far as the aircraft was concerned," Machete said about the TSB investigation.
"I guess, now, it will just be a matter of reviewing both the pilot and aircraft records, [and] doing a weather check for the area, if we possibly can. And, basically once we get all this information, then we will sit down and try to assess and determine how far this investigation is going to go."
The plane, a Havilland Beaver, was registered with Sudbury Aviation, he noted. That company is based in Azilda and offers remote fly-in fishing services.
