Accident at Big Trout Lake, Ontario


1997-03-21: The aircraft a Beech A100, was on a scheduled flight from Sioux Lookout, Ontario to Fort Severn, Ontario with an enroute stop at Big Trout Lake. The company had initiated a communications search for the overdue aircraft when they received a phone call that the aircraft had crashed on a lake approximately 2.7 miles south of the Big Trout Lake airport. The pilot had radioed town reporting the accident and asked for help. One of the passengers, a doctor, treated the 3 moderate/seriously injured passengers. The other passengers and crew apparently suffered cuts and bruises. Weather at the time was reported poor visibility and ceiling due to blizzard and blowing snow conditions. Apparently the AWOS unit at Big Trout Lake was reporting "Clear Below 10" and reduced visibility.
