It shows the plane careening through the path of the incoming vehicle with one of its wings either clipping the ground or coming perilously close to doing so.

Roadways in the area of Buttonville Airport were closed for several hours March 12 after a crash involving a small plane.

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'. In a release, the agency described the incident as a "runway excursion".

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 in a bunch of takeoff and landings if you're training".
