Site of Local Crash Landing of Plane

While I was out running some errands today, I received a text message from my son.  Word had spread among students that a Cessna had just made a crash landing at a high school here in Burlington Ontario, and he thought that I might want to take advantage of the photo opportunity. 

The stories that I heard while I was there were all second hand, so it would be better to check the local news tonight if you’re interested in finding out what happened.  I was told though that no one onboard was hurt. 

I have offered these photos to the local press.  There haven’t been any nibbles on that offer yet, so here they are for you to enjoy.
