Members of the Transportation Safety Board are expected to arrive this afternoon to examine the accident scene of a fatal plane crash that occurred yesterday in Baldonnel. According to TSB spokesperson Chris Krepski, even though investigators will be on scene it’s unknown as of now if a full investigation will take place.
Krepski said a full investigation will happen if there’s reason to believe safety can be improved.
“At this point we haven’t decided whether or not we’re going to conduct a full investigation. It depends on what we find at the accident site and whether we determine there is the potential to advance transportation safety by conducting an investigation,” he said.
While a full investigation may not take place, the accident site will be documented. Among the things that will be looked at include the wreckage itself, potential cues as to how the plane came into contact with the ground, pieces of interest that may be taken back to the TSB lab for deeper analysis, weather conditions at the time, and pilot training records and maintenance records among other things.
