The single-engine aircraft took off from Edmonton enroute to Winnipeg. Edmonton air traffic control watched the plane descending on radar when it disappeared.

Hopefully they can find survivors, but it doesn't look good.

Quoting CBC:
Williams took over the company from his father, Allen Williams, 65, who was himself killed when he crashed his Cessna 172 in rugged terrain near Golden, B.C., in October.

Searchers found Allen Williams's three-year-old granddaughter, Kate, safely strapped into a child seat in the upside-down plane's wreckage. She was the only survivor of that crash.

Are you kidding? That is really, really bad luck. It is hard to believe that this is the son of the pilot in that famous crash a few months ago.

I wonder what the causes of the crash were. I'll be on the look out for more information because this looks pretty interesting to me.

Here's the Global News story:

CTV mentioned that the pilot reported a problem with a gyro before descending on radar!!

Wreckage spread out over a Km.

Shows the wreckage on the cover at the moment. No post-impact fire. Fuselage looks relatively intact and survivable. Looks like the plane flew into the ground. Controllers watched it descend on radar.

I know it's too early to speculate but I speculate... pressurization problem.

That's the second crash of that kind of A/C in a couple of months.

Somebody schmucked one in about 20 miles South of Springbank (YBW).
Pilot owner again.

That was just a VFR flight probably sightseeing to stay current, can't remember any other details on that except nobody else on board and I don't think a fatality, BUT lots of damage!!

Just speculating of course, but it sounds like it may have been a spiral dive. If it was indeed IMC and he was having gyro problems, it would have been easy to get into one, and the fact that it disintegrated on the way down adds to that. Does anyone know if he was IFR licensed?

Promise me you'll always leave the ground

Unfathomable to have this happen to the same firm and family twice in less than 6 months. My deepest symapthy goes out to their friends and families.
