Postmedia: The Transportation Safety Board of Canada has released its report on a plane crash that occurred on Dec. 5, 2022, when a Cessna 150G crashed into the median of Highway 401 near Bainsville, Ont. The report suggests weather conditions at the time of the flight may have played a role in the crash. The investigation noted the engine did not show signs of catastrophic failure, but due to the extensive engine damage, it couldn’t be determined if the carburetor heat system was on or functioning properly. Weather data indicated conditions that could lead to ice buildup in the carburetor, potentially affecting engine performance.
