The cause of a fatal plane crash near the Stratford Airport last August will remain unknown.
The Transportation Safety Board (TSB) of Canada released its investigation report on Thursday into the crash that claimed the life of a 65-year-old Sarnia man.
The TSB says the Grumman G-44 Widgeon Aircraft took off from Sarnia on the morning of August 23rd and it was flying to Stratford to have its annual inspection done.
The report looks at the weather that day, the pilot’s history of flying, and wreckage information.
The aircraft wasn’t equipped with a lightweight data recorder, and it wasn’t required to have one.
Given the absence of data, the report finds that the investigation could not determine the complete sequence of events that led to the collision with the terrain.
