Description

On September 7, 1977, a private aircraft dropped altitude to 500 feet (150 m) in dense fog and struck CKVR's 1,000-foot (300 m) transmitter tower, killing all five people aboard the plane and destroying the tower and antenna. The station's 225-foot (69 m) auxiliary tower was also destroyed and there was some damage to the main studio building. This is some archival 'b-roll' footage of the clean-up efforts the day after the accident.
