Eight killed in mid-air collision
Eight people are dead following an apparent mid-air collision between two airplanes just north of Sioux Lookout Monday afternoon.
Pilots navigate own way into Sioux
Sioux Lookout has what is called an “uncontrolled” airport, serviced by a flight services station. Air traffic is regulated by controllers in Winnipeg. The commands are relayed from Winnipeg to Sioux Lookout where the flight service specialists pass on the instructions to pilots flying in or out of the airport.
OPP officers return from crash site Monday evening. They were scheduled to return at daybreak Tuesday.
