SR-20 Impacted The Roof Of An Office Building
A Cirrus SR-20 with two aboard went down on top of an office
building in the town of Markham north of Toronto, Canada Tuesday.
Both people on board the aircraft were fatally injured.
The airplane had reportedly departed Buttonville Airport less
than half a mile from the accident scene about 1230 EDT after a
brief stop for unknown reasons. Dennis Flaherty, a spokesperson for
the town of Markham, told the CBC that the plane was "experiencing
problems" when it impacted the office building.
The SR-20 was based in Burlington, Canada, about 43 miles from
the crash site. It was reportedly experiencing problems with its
radios, and no flight plan was filed, so there was no record of who
was on board at the time of the crash.
Witnesses to the accident said smoke was coming out of the
airplane, and that it rolled before diving into the roof of the
building. "There was a fairly large explosion," said York EMS
operation supervisor Louise Lorenc. The building, which is the
heaquarters of Thinkway Toys, was damaged, but only two minor
injuries were reported among the 14 people in the building when the
