The Transportation Safety Board of Canada will release its report tomorrow on what caused the crash of a Keystone Air Service Piper Navajo into North Spirit Lake killing four and injuring one on Jan. 10, 2012.
Up until now, it has been unknown exactly what caused the crash, but days after the plane went down the TSB issued an initial report which said the aircraft’s landing gear and flaps were down as it appeared ready to land at the reserve in northwestern Ontario.
Pilot Fariborz Abasabady, 41, North Spirit Lake First Nation employee Martha Campbell, 38, Aboriginal Strategies president Ben Van Hoek, 62, and accountant Colette Eisinger, 39, all lost their lives in the crash.
Brian Shead, who was 36 at the time of the crash and needed surgery for injuries to his ankle and foot, tried in vain to extricate others, but was only successful in getting the pilot out before flames consumed the wreckage.
