A ROYAL AIR Force (RAF) British Aerospace Nimrod MR2 maritime reconnaissance aircraft with a crew of seven crashed into Lake Ontario during its display sequence at the Canadian International Air Show, Toronto on 2 September. There were no survivors. When the aircraft hit the surface, about 200 nose-down, it had just rolled its wings level and was pulling-up in the final stage of a wing over to the left, the RAF has confirmed. The reason for the accident is not known and a full investigation has started. The aircraft was fitted with a flight data recorder and navy divers are working to recover it along with the aircraft wreckage. It's the second loss of a Nimrod this year.
