Plane crashes into Markham Building


This afternoon while I was holding court in an all-day meeting at the office, one of my staff members noticed some smoke across the highway over at Buttonville Airport, north-east of Toronto.  

He told me that it looked like a plane crash. 

Turns out he was right. 

A plane crashed onto the roof of a local business killing 2 people.  See CBC story below.

Earlier in the day, as one of the planes that take off from Buttonville buzzed our building and the meeting room, I commented to our visitors that the normal flight path of these planes is through the empty lot beside our building, away from the building.  I ensured our guests that these planes do not crash…

Famous last words!

Update: This past Sunday another plane – this one heading north, crashed into an empty field killing the pilot.

Cause for concern now???
