It's been making the rounds over at the Avcanada forums, complete with plenty of jokes about how the co-founder of a Donut shop had his airplane do donuts on the runway! Big grin

Here's the link to the topic there:

Hi Express1...

This is the only news report I have found on the incident so far, from Canadian Press:

FOX HARBOUR, N.S. - A private jet carrying Tim Hortons co-founder Ron Joyce crashed Sunday at the northern Nova Scotia golf resort he owns, though no one was seriously injured.

The Bombardier Global 5000, en route from Hamilton, ran into trouble while landing in high winds at the Fox Harb'r Resort's private airstrip around 2:30 p.m. local time.

The Mounties, who confirmed Joyce was on board, said it appeared the jet's wing hit the runway, causing the plane to spin before stopping near the end of the runway. There was no fire.

The jet was carrying two crew members and eight passengers, who were taken to hospital to be checked out but there were no major injuries.

Steven Joyce, Ron Joyce's son, was on the plane and said it was a rough flight before the crash.

"It's a pretty windy day, we were bouncing around a fair amount," Joyce said in an interview

"We've activated our emergency response plan. It's one of those things that you put together and you never really think you're going to use it."

He said the jet's landing gear "folded up" during the crash.

"It looks like a plane lying on its stomach in the grass," said Joyce.

It was a brand new jet, delivered to the resort last month.

Officials with the Transporation Safety Board were sent to the scene Sunday evening.

Spokesman John Cottreau said the board would assess the crash and determine whether a full investigation is neccessary.

"We investigate to learn lessons if we see something that bears further looking at to learn lessons that might avoid it in the future," said Cottreau.

The Mounties set up a mobile command post at the resort as they continued their own investigation, said Const. Paul Calder.

"We're quite happy that we don't appear to have any major serious injuries," he said.

Calder said the provincial Environment Department has also been contacted because the jet is still carrying aviation fuel.

Ron Joyce, 77, who grew up in Tatamagouche, N.S, started the iconic Tim Hortons (TSX:THI) doughnut chain with NHL defenceman Tim Horton in the 1960s.

Joyce announced in 1995 that he was selling Tim Hortons to the Wendy's fast-food chain.

The airstrip is 5000'

That's all too, to add,

I haven't seen any pictures at all.

Besides owning Tim Horton's (he bought all the shares after Tim died) - after growing up with Tim Horton the hockey player, Joyce was also a former part owner of The Calgary Flames Hockey Team.

Just a minor nitpick. It's the Global 5000 (no "Express"). The other current model in the "Global" family is the Global Express XRS which has a longer fuselage.
