Two pilots and co-owners of the plane, a 55-year-old man and a 63-year-old-man, were killed in an Ottawa plane crash, according to CBC news.
The younger man was the pilot of the 1969 Cessna Cardinal 177. It crashed Wednesday at about 7:30 p.m. near Ottawa’s main airport. Paramedics believe that both men died immediately.
A friend said that the two men were best friends who mainly stuck together, "They tend to fly together as a team. They recently had done a trip to the Maritimes in that aircraft," he added. "We knew they were enjoying their trip down south and looking forward to coming back."
Both men were certified pilots who had experience with the plane, which was "modernized" and in "excellent shape," said the friend. He added that the plane had passed an annual inspection in late November.
The pilot, who had more than 300 flying hours, was operating the plane with instruments. The two men first headed to Carp Airport but appeared to change their minds because of poor weather conditions. Then they headed towards Ottawa’s MacDonald-Cartier Airport when the flight controllers lost them on the radar.
“We're all in a bit of shock. It's not something you expect," the friend said.
