Dave Mitchell told CTV Toronto: ‘That [the] aircraft wasn’t involved in a collision with a vehicle coming through here is quite amazing.’ The plane was being operated by a male instructor with his female student on board. They suffered minor injuries and no motorists were hurt.   Share this article Share The Transportation Safety Board of Canada is said to be investigating and say the plane appeared to be attempting a move called the ‘touch and go.’ A spokesman said: ‘So you come in to land and you basically do a landing and you slow down and accelerate and then you do a go, another takeoff.’It’s an easy way to get a bunch of takeoffs and landings in if you are doing some training. A standard manoeuvre but in this case something went wrong.’
