I know at least one A-Netter that works at ASW ... hopefully he wasnt one of the deceased... Great group of people there.. my prayers go out to them at ASW and the rest of the families affected.

Indeed, very sad.

This article contains 5 pictures from a different angle than the video in the CBC piece. It is amazing the aircraft didn't impact a building or two.
