Cessna Lands on Ottawa Thoroughfare


A Cessna 150 landed on Ottawa’s Sir George-Étienne Cartier Parkway Thursday afternoon. Emergency crews were dispatched to the scene shortly after noon local time. None of the occupants in the two-seat aircraft were injured and the aircraft was not damaged. The landing site, not far from the Rockcliffe airport (CYRO), was cordoned off until the airplane could be removed.

There is no word yet on who the pilot was or the reason for the off-airport landing.

The privately-registered Cessna 150G was manufactured in 1967, and public records for the aircraft, registration C-GGVY, show it to be based in St-Mathias-sur-Richelieu airport (CSP5), Quebec and registered to a man with an address in the same town.
