Mystery surrounds University of Michigan student who rented a plane that crashed, but he is missing

Lynsey_ADMIN_Lynsey_ADMIN_ Administrator
An unidentified University of Michigan student rented a single engine Cessna 172 at Ann Arbor Airport on March 15The wreckage of the plane was found late that night in Manitouwadge, Ontario Authorities say there is no sign of the student having been in the plane at the time of the crash or having walked away from the crash  

Authorities in Ontario are investigating a mysterious small airplane crash that appears to involve a University of Michigan student.

The graduate student, who has not been identified, was last seen Wednesday, March 15, said Diane Brown, spokeswoman for the University of Michigan Division of Public Safety and Security, according to MLive.

The student, who is apparently male according to the site, then rented a single engine Cessna 172 at Ann Arbor Airport that day.

He was a Chinese national, reported TB News Watch.


 

The plane's wreckage was found 11:38pm Wednesday night in a woodsy area of Manitouwadge, about 37.3 miles, east of the town of Marathon, according to a release from the Ontario Provincial Police.

The wreckage was about 460 miles northwest of Ann Arbor Airport by air. 

Mysteriously, the student was not in the wreckage, nor was there any sign of anyone around the wreckage, or having walked away from the wreckage, said authorities.

There were no footprints in the surrounding snow. He also did not appear to land at all after take-off and before the crash.

    Well, there are three possibilities: (1) He left the plane in mid-flight; (2) it snowed after the plane crashed, obscuring signs on the ground; (3) he vanished into thin air.

    What happened to the pilot of Cessna 172? Mystery surrounds the fate of student missing from crash site after police say he wasn't in the plane at the time of impact 


    Pilot, believed to be a graduate student at the University of Michigan, rented single-engine aircraft at the Ann Arbor Airport on WednesdayFlight plan listed Harbor Springs, Michigan, as its destination, but the plane crashed 285 miles away outside Manitouwadge, CanadaCockpit was empty and there were no footprints in snow around the wreckageThe plane does not have a roof hatch and was not designed to carry parachutes 

    Mystery surrounds a pilot who was nowhere to be found when a plane crashed in Ontario, Canada, investigators said.

    The pilot, believed to be a graduate student at the University of Michigan, rented the single-engine aircraft at the Ann Arbor Airport on Wednesday.

    The flight plan listed Harbor Springs, Michigan, as its destination, but the plane crashed 285 miles away in Canada, where investigators did not find a body or any footprints in the snow surrounding the wreckage, the Chronicle Journal reported.

    'When [the pilot] exited, and how [he] exited, is still a mystery,' senior investigator Peter Rowntree said.

    The plane does not have a roof hatch, and was not designed to carry parachutes, according to Rowntree who added: 'The only way in or out is through the two main cabin doors.' 

    The pilot, said to be 'experienced', was last seen on March 15 - the same day he rented a single-engine Cessna 172 registered to University of Michigan Flyers in Ann Arbor.

    Investigators believe he put the plane on autopilot after he filed a flight plan to Harbor Springs, about 250 miles north of Ann Arbor, the Chronicle Journal reported.

    But the plane crashed at 11.38pm on Wednesday night in the woods near Manitouwadge, Canada - more than 285 miles away.

    'We were unable to locate the whereabouts of the pilot,' said Sgt. Peter Leon of the Ontario police.

    This is a pretty strange case. I'm getting curious as to what actually happened.
