UPDATE: Two people confirmed dead in plane crash at Brantford Municipal Airport

Comments Off on UPDATE: Two people confirmed dead in plane crash at Brantford Municipal Airport
Ontario Provincial Police have confirmed that a husband and wife died in a plane crash at the Brantford Municipal Airport.
OPP Constable Ken Johnston said Mildred, 81, and Ronald Chamberlain, 76, from Brampton, crashed sometime overnight Monday or in the early morning hours of Tuesday.
“There are no staff at the airport after 5 p.m.,” Johnson said. “Pilots can access the airport by keying the mic several times to turn the [runway] lights on.”
Johnson said they don’t know exactly what time the plane crashed because there were no employees at the airport at the time of the crash or if the lights were used.
The first employee that arrived in the morning found the plane on the grass beside the runway covered in a layer of snow around 8 a.m.
Johnson said the incident is still under investigation, but the Transportation Safety Board was taking over the investigation.
The couple was flying a Piper-Arrow plane.
The City of Brantford confirmed a fatal plane crash at the Brantford Municipal Airport on Tuesday morning at around 8 a.m. 
The pilot of a small private aircraft and one passenger were pronounced dead at the scene.
A media release from the City of Brantford said that a fatal accident involving a small private aircraft occurred overnight at the west end of the Airport. 
The County of Brant Fire Department, Ontario Provincial Police and representatives of Canada Transport are currently on scene.
Canada Transport will lead the investigation of the incident. 
The Airport is closed to the public and media while investigation efforts are completed.
