Plane that crashed after Abbotsford airshow wasn’t allowed to sell tickets to passengers: report

Five people, including four passengers, were hurt in crash at Abbotsford International Airport

The plane that crashed at the Abbotsford International Airport shortly after last year’s airshow didn’t have a permit to carry paying passengers, the Transportation Safety Board wrote in a report issued this morning.

Five people were injured – two seriously – when a 1930s-era biplane, a de Havilland Dragon Rapide, crashed shortly after takeoff following last year’s airshow. The museum that owned the plane had sold tickets to paying customers on the Abbotsford International Airshow’s website.
