A small plane crash in southwest Ottawa has been reported on Wednesday, December 14, 2011 that took the lives of two Ottawa men, international news reported.

The accident happened on that same day and the victims were identified as 55-year-old Barry Stratton and passenger Jacques Domey, who was in his 60s.

Reports said that “Barry Stratton was flying the 1969 Cessna Cardinal 177 home after an 11-day trip to Florida and the Bahamas and back with his good friend Jacques Domey” who was also a pilot and co-owner of the small plane.

The four-seater plane was said to have disappeared from the radar on approach for landing at Ottawa‘s MacDonald-Cartier airport around 7:15 p.m. (Canada time). It was found about 45 minutes later near the RCMP headquarters in Barrhaven.

Initial reports said that the 1969 Cessna Cardinal 177 crashed into a hydro pole before hitting the ground and was believed that the plane had run out of fuel.

Plane crash investigation continues to identify the real cause of the crash. CBC News reported that the “cause of the crash might not be revealed for months or even a year, but experts say visibility may have been a factor.”
