Plain plane stories 

Be the 1st to vote.

Humble Howard, a small craft pilot, confirmed in my mind that this plane crash story is yet another . Humble also goes on to remind us that the original plane story was of a small craft, among other conflicting (by design) versions of planes.

Zoom to 1:40:00 to hear his thoughts. It’s highly unlikely any amateur could or would fly a plane at night on a path with very few lights. Amazing that a self-confessed skeptic isn’t the least bit concerned about all the details of this story that don’t add up, and never will. Willfully blind?

Go here to read about the – at an intersection I personally go through regularly. Even the reporter was mystified that not one hydro wire was touched. Interesting 0;eyewitness” footage here from an interesting facebook profile.


It’s the 6 weeks before 9/11-a time you’ll be hearing about more plane crash stories than normal.

    The Piper Tomahawk which “crashed” on Lansdowne “hadn’t flown in awhile since it was due for repairs“, reported Chex TV, who interviewed the owner’s wife, Suzanne/Sue/Susan Peck.

    In Newmarket, Suzanne Peck was stunned by the news that her husband beloved plane had been stolen.

    Suzanne: “His dad was an airline pilot so it was always his dream to own one and now…it’s gone.”

    For 10 years Donald Peck took small flights on the plane. But he hadn’t flown in awhile since it was due for repairs.

    Suzanne: It wasn’t working yet – it works but it was being maintenanced for its annual. so there were things still being processed.”…

    The Toronto Star reports:…:

    As Don Peck neared the end of his firefighting shift in north Toronto Friday, he had no idea a young thief was hurtling through the night sky toward a fatal crash on Peterborough’s main drag — in Peck’s propeller plane.

    “I said, ‘Holy smokes! Really? I’m the only one with a key,’ ” Peck recalled after York Regional Police contacted him at 3:30 a.m., just over two hours after the crash.

    Peck’s two-seat Piper PA Tomahawk, a training aircraft, had been stolen from Markham Airport. The thief clearly knew something about aeronautics, taking off and flying for about 100 kilometres solo before the crash, said airport operator Allan Rubin.

    “He had to have had some kind of experience, obviously . . . The keys were not there . . . but if you can take off, you can fly it.”

    The plane, which was insured, was valued between $20,000 and $30,000, said Peck.

    More bad luck for the Pecks. In 2010 Don and Sue Peck’s house burned down. And now this. Would you Adam-and-Eve it?

    After fire destroyed the home of Susan and Don Peck, they found themselves at odds with their insurer. Not only was their insurance company slow to respond, they were also unfair in their assessment of damages. Susan and Don engaged NFA [National Fire Adjustment Co., Inc.] to assist in their claim settlement. NFA was able to settle the claim to their complete satisfaction in a timely manner. We would highly recommend NFA’s services to anyone who has experienced a loss such as we did.

      Wonder whether brother Peck had his plane chipped.
