TSB / Google Earth The Transportation Safety Board of Canada does not appear to have definitive answers into what caused the fatal airplane crash near Stratford Municipal Airport last August. The collision, which involved a Grumman G-44 Widgeon, occurred on Aug. 23, 2022, and left the pilot as the lone casualty.The TSB released its report on Thursday which provided some details into the crash involving a plane that had taken off from Sarnia Chris Hadfield Airport earlier in the morning and was headed to Stratford for a routine inspection.It says that at around 9:10 a.m., the plane was spotted flying to the airport in poor visibility conditions but then disappeared from the sight of the airport before the sound of the crash was heard a few seconds later.
