Initial Report Into Pelee Island Crash Due Tuesday

CTSB Will First Brief Victims' Families

Canadian Transport Safety Board investigators are scheduled to update the famlies of 10 people killed in a Cessna 208B (file photos, below) crash Tuesday, but don't look for anyone to be satisfied by the results.

"I hope it will (bring closure), but it's not likely to," said Rick Brisco, whose son, 47-year old Robert, was among the dead.

Georgian Express Flight 126 was headed for Windsor from Pelee Island, on Lake Erie back in January, when it crashed into the ice-filled lake. It took recovery teams almost two weeks to come up with the wreckage and the remains of those who were killed.

"We are at a point in the investigation where the bulk of data gathered is complete and the analysis is going to begin," said CTSB spokesman John Cottreau. "What we are going to do is just provide a status of the investigation so far and the factual information that the investigation has drawn from the data gathered."

For Brisco, Tuesday's update is a step along the way toward closure. "We hope that we will get particular information about why the airplane crashed. That is all we are concerned about. What's done is done, it can't be changed."
