Collision with terrain, Cessna 182H, C-GKNZ, Parry Sound Area Municipal Airport (Ontario), 09 November 2015: TU3-5/15-0188E-PDF

"On 09 November 2015, a privately registered Cessna 182H (registration C-GKNZ, serial number 182-56161) with 1 pilot and 1 passenger on board, departed from the Parry Sound Area Municipal Airport, Ontario, at 1917 Eastern Standard Time under night visual flight rules for a flight to Tillsonburg Airport, Ontario. Once airborne, the aircraft immediately started a right climbing furn for approximately 90 degrees of heading, and then continued its turn for an additional 180 degrees while descending before colliding with the terrain. The aircraft clipped trees in a nose-down attitude with a significant angle of bank to the right before striking the ground on a rocky downward slope. The 2 occupants were fatally injured and a post-impact fire destroyed most of the aircraft. The aircraft was equiped with an emergency locator transmitter, but it was not activated by impact forces. The accident occurred during the hours of darkness."--Summary, t.p.
