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."
