Ottawa Plane Crash
December 16, 2011 by staff
Ottawa Plane Crash, Barry Stratton was flying the 1969 Cessna Cardinal 177 home after an 11-day trip to Florida and the Bahamas and back with his good friend Jacques Domey. Stratton planned to land the plane at Ottawa’s MacDonald-Cartier airport, many believe, but a combination of bad weather and other unknown circumstances caused the plane to crash.
Two local men died Wednesday when the small plane they were flying in crashed in a field near the Ottawa International Airport.
William Barry Stratton and Jacques Domey were on the last leg of a return trip from Florida.
The men were part of a five-person partnership that owned the plane, a four-seat Cessna 177 Cardinal they had bought in April 2010.
The plane departed the Willamsburg International Airport in Pennsylvania shortly after 5 p.m. for the roughly two-hour flight. The plane went off the radar shortly before it was scheduled to land in Ottawa.
The plane was originally supposed to land at the Carp airport just west of the city, but was diverted to the Ottawa International Airport.
