Pilot of tiny jet dies in fiery crash
Plane plunges into ground near Ottawa
By Brian LAGHI, Page A11
Ottawa -- A pilot flying the world's smallest jet was killed in a fiery accident near Ottawa yesterday after his aircraft plunged into the ground while practising for the region's annual air show.
The victim was identified by an air show spokeswoman as Scott MANNING of Toronto.
The jet, known as a BD5J Stinger, was moving at high speed and at tree-top height when it appeared to go sideways before crashing into the ground around noon and lighting on fire, Staff Sergeant Monique PERRAS of the Ottawa Police Service said.
She said the 48-year-old pilot died on impact. The Transportation Safety Board will investigate.
A spokeswoman for the air show, Whitney ZELMER, said that Mr. MANNING's wife, Nancy, was on site when the crash occurred. The pilot was in rehearsals for Air Show Ottawa, which takes place in the nearby community of Carp.
At 6 feet 3 inches and 215 pounds, Mr. MANNING's size made him a remarkable sight as pilot of the tiny jet, which is four metres long, had a five-metre wingspan and weighed 202 kilograms. A former professional football player, Mr. MANNING graduated from the University of Waterloo in 1985, according to an alumni website.
There are only six such jets in the world. Mr. MANNING both built and flew the aircraft, which is also known as the James Bond jet because it was used in the movie Octopussy. The jet has also been used by the U.S. government for secret radar testing.
"All was going absolutely according to plan," Ms. ZELMER said. "There was no sign or any indication at all that anything was going wrong."
The jet performs several acrobatic manoeuvres, which include loops, high-speed passes and rolls. It can fly up to 480 kilometres an hour, even though its engine measures only 30 centimetres in diameter, is 60 centimetres long and weighs 32 kilograms.
"Although the family did not want to speak, they were very adamant that I let media know that Scott loved aviation," Ms. ZELMER said. "He was doing what he loved."
Ms. ZELMER said the show will go on this weekend as scheduled. The crash did not take place close to spectators, Sgt. PERRAS said.
Another pilot at the Carp Airport said the Stinger is notoriously hard to fly. "They do have a very high crash rate," John LOBB told CFRA radio.

William SIBBALD, Doctor And Educator (1946-2006)
Physician-in-chief at Sunnybrook and Women's College hospitals in Toronto was an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who guided the city through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis and helped alter the nature of intensive-care treatment in Canada
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S6
Toronto -- Bill SIBBALD was an ideas machine. Strategies, suggestions and potential solutions cascaded from his lips at the Ontario teaching hospitals where he built an international reputation, at global medical conferences and around the family dinner table.
His ideas helped to change the face of intensive-care treatment in Canada, to shape the way health care is delivered in Ontario, to guide Toronto through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis of 2003 and to inspire a new generation of critical-care professionals.
Dr. William John SIBBALD was director of critical care at Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario, and a professor at the University of Western Ontario from 1977 until 2000. Then he became physician-in-chief at Toronto's Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre and a professor of medicine at the University of Toronto. In both roles, he was a physician, teacher, leader, mentor and researcher.
"I used to tell people who didn't know him they should ignore something the first time he mentioned it," says Doctor Frank RUTLEDGE, who heads the critical-care programs at Victoria Hospital and Western. "They should pay attention the second time. The third time they should put it at the top of their pile. He threw out so many ideas, if you tried to work on everything the first time it was mentioned, you'd never get anything done." Doctor Steven SHUMAK, deputy physician-in-chief, says many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas involved medical informatics, the application of computers and information systems to improve patient care and education.
Colleagues remember him as gruff but generous, an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who smoked heavily in his early years to burn off excess energy, but who gave it up after an operation for salivary gland cancer. He was an advocate for those he worked with, giving them his undivided attention in private meetings. In the workplace or on the golf course, he strove for perfection, but often interrupted a game to respond to a BlackBerry message. He occasionally told off-colour jokes and he followed hockey religiously, even when out of the country.
Dr. SIBBALD started work before dawn, even on weekends, so he could be home to spend time with his wife and five children. He coached his sons in hockey, attended his children's sporting events and told them all he was their "biggest cheerleader."
Over his career, Doctor SIBBALD wrote about 250 articles and editorials, more than 70 book chapters and some major textbooks on critical care. He was invited to give some 550 lectures in 16 countries. He held many positions with medical and critical-care associations.
Dr. Ron HOLLIDAY, a general surgeon at Victoria Hospital and a professor of surgery at Western, says Doctor SIBBALD was often thinking of issues five or 10 years down the road. And he always knew who to approach to get around the system. "We called it the SIBBALD end run," he says.
Critical-care experts around the world knew him as a friend and a trendsetter. "He was a fantastic scientist and a great clinician respected by all," says Doctor Jean-Louis Vincent, a professor of intensive care at the Free University of Brussels. "He could always ask the right question and raise the appropriate issue in any kind of debate or scientific discussion."
Bill SIBBALD, as his Friends called him, was the middle of three children of Jack SIBBALD, a banker, and Shirley (née STONE) who grew up in a suburb of Guelph, Ontario As a boy, he played basketball, football, badminton and hockey.
Gale KAY, now a retired Presbyterian minister, babysat him when he was about 12. "He was quite clear that he was going to be a doctor," she says, "not that he wanted to be a doctor, but that he was going to be one."
He was graduated from medical school at the University of Western Ontario in 1970 and stayed on to complete a residency in internal medicine in 1974. That was the year he married Connie ECKERSLEY, a nurse he worked with in intensive care.
From 1974 to 1976, he did a fellowship in critical-care trauma at Wayne State University School of Medicine, in Detroit. The specialty was in its infancy in Canada at the time, and he returned to London as one of the country's few experts in the field.
At the time, Victoria Hospital had become "a massive zone of deferred maintenance," according to Doctor David NAYLOR, president of the University of Toronto and a long-time friend. Doctor Adam LINTON, the hospital's physician-in-chief, put the young Doctor SIBBALD in charge of the intensive-care department where he overcame professional turf wars and put together a team of specialists in medicine, surgery and anesthesia. Doctor Trevor LOBB, an anesthetist at the hospital, says Doctor SIBBALD helped change "a glorified recovery room" into a critical-care trauma centre that treated patients flown in by helicopter and that trained fellows who came from around the world. In 1976, he made the news for using an armed forces pressure suit to control massive bleeding in a patient. A year later, he was in the headlines for telling a medical conference in France that the common practice of lowering the head of a critically ill shock victim might actually have detrimental effects.
In one highly publicized incident, Doctor SIBBALD, accompanied by Dr. HOLLIDAY, went to court in the middle of the night seeking permission for a blood transfusion to save the life of a Jehovah's witness boy. The judge bypassed the family's religious objections by making the boy a ward of the court, allowing the procedure to go ahead.
Much of Doctor SIBBALD's research centred on sepsis (disease-causing agents in the blood), trauma, blood substitutes, and ethical issues involving life-support and end of life. In later years, he branched out into the field of health-care policy and delivery.
For many years, he used sheep to study infections in people. "In our research lab at Victoria Hospital, you could hear the sheep baaing," Doctor HOLLIDAY says. Doctor SIBBALD introduced infections into the animals and studied the effects. Then he treated the sheep, so they didn't have to be destroyed.
He served as co-chairman of a Working Group on Critical Care in Ontario, which presented its findings to the province's health ministry in 1991. Over the years, he received many honours, including a distinguished investigator award from the American College of Critical Care Medicine in 1998.
Dr. SIBBALD turned down many job offers in the United States, and in 2000 he moved to Toronto as Sunnybrook's physician-in-chief. That put him on the front lines when many of the patients from the 2003 epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome ended up at Sunnybrook. He threw his back out while dealing with the crisis, so his bed at home became the command post where he kept in contact with officials from hospitals, government and the military.
In one phone call, he told Doctor Tom STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, director of critical care at Toronto's Mount Sinai and University Health Network, that his staff was starting to become ill. "He's a strong man, but he broke down crying," said Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART. "It struck me how soft and sensitive he is."
Two back operations followed. Doctor SIBBALD returned to work after each of them, even though he had to hobble around the hallways.
After the severe acute respiratory syndrome emergency ended, Ontario's ministry of health set up a Critical Care Steering Committee. Doctor SIBBALD and Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART were among its members. Many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas showed up in the report and are now being implemented, Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART says.
In November, 2004, Doctor SIBBALD was diagnosed with colon cancer. He carried on working and, hoping for a remedy, sought treatment at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo. In early September, he was told the end was near. He resigned as Sunnybrook's chief of medicine on September 5 and spent the following week as a patient in the hospital.
Staff members still came to him for advice. Doctor Andreas LAUPACIS, now the director of a research institute at Toronto's Saint Michael's Hospital, asked for his opinion on an upcoming debate. "His eyes lit up," Doctor LAUPACIS says. "His energy came back. He said, 'Look at this article and that article and here's the point I would be making.' "
Dr. SIBBALD went Toronto on September 12. A day later, his fourth grandchild was born in Vancouver. His son Martyn phoned to say the baby would be called William. The next morning Doctor SIBBALD was shown an e-mailed photo of his new namesake. He died later that day.
William John SIBBALD was born in London, Ontario, on June 28, 1946. He died of colon cancer at his Toronto home on September 14, 2006. He was 60. He leaves his wife Connie; children Tammie, Martyn, Robert, Katie and Georgie; four grandchildren; his mother, Shirley, and sisters Nancy DAVIDSON and Susan TAILOR/TAYLOR.

Game cited in racing death
By Tara BRAUTIGAM, Canadian Press, Thurs., January 26, 2006
Toronto -- The fantasy world of video game street racing may have influenced two teenage boys accused of piloting real-life luxury cars in a high-speed contest that claimed the life of a taxi driver, police said yesterday.
A copy of Need for Speed, a game that allows players to select high-end cars and race them through crowded urban areas, was found on the front seat of one of the suspect's cars following the late-night crash.
"Here we have, in real life, two guys driving high-end cars at a high rate of speed in an urban area," said Toronto police Det. Paul LOBSINGER.
"I don't think it's a giant leap for people to say, 'Wow, how does this go together?' "
The 18-year-old Friends were racing a pair of Mercedes Benzes through one of the city's wealthiest neighbourhoods Tuesday night, reaching speeds of 140 kilometres an hour in a 50-kilometre zone, police allege.
The taxi was hit while making a left turn onto the road, killing 46-year-old driver Tahir KHAN.
The married father of two young children immigrated to Canada six years ago from Pakistan, said Jim BELL, general manager of Diamond Taxicab Association.
"He was working to… reunite his family in Canada, and lived the Canadian dream," Bell said. "Tahir's dream for him and his family has been ended."
The force of the crash left the taxi wrapped around a utility pole, plumes of steam still rolling off the wreckage as investigators sifted through the twisted metal.
Despite finding an auto-racing game at the scene of the crime, LOBSINGER stressed the game wasn't solely to blame.
"Look, in the proper perspective… if everyone imitated a video game such as that, we'd have to ban cars," he said.
The driver of the Mercedes involved in the crash suffered a few scratches. The other driver fled the scene, police said.
Alexander RYAZANOV and Wang-Piao ROSS are charged with criminal negligence causing death. ROSS also faces a charge of failing to stop after an accident causing death.
RYAZANOV and ROSS appeared in court yesterday with their bail hearings rescheduled to tomorrow and Monday, respectively.
The incident is the latest in what some say is a growing problem of street racing all across Canada.
The increase in street racing incidents led the former Liberal government to introduce legislation requiring judges to revoke the driver's licence of anyone convicted of street racing.
The bill failed to pass into law before the government fell in November.

Driver faces charges in death of teen
By Hayley MICK, Page A10
With his capable hands and eagerness to please, Ravi MAHDAI could always be counted on to fix things.
On Monday afternoon, the 17-year-old headed to a friend's house in Mississauga to help her change the oil in her Ford Explorer.
Police say he was in the rear passenger seat of that sport utility vehicle later that night when he became Toronto's latest traffic fatality.
Mr. MAHDAI's six siblings and his parents, who are both unemployed because of poor health, struggled yesterday to come to terms with his death.
"[Our mother] is still thinking that he's going to walk through the door," a tearful Trisha MADHAI, 19, said yesterday in front of their modest red-brick home in Mississauga.
Dawn Marie COX, 37, is charged with impaired driving causing death and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.
She was released on bail yesterday. Her family members did not speak to the media.
According to his family, Mr. MAHDAI had gone into Toronto with Ms. COX and her boyfriend, David LATCHANA, 21, to shoot some pool on Monday evening.
They were driving home along the Gardiner Expressway at 10: 32 p.m. when, police say, Ms. COX lost control of the vehicle just east of Parklawn Road.
Police say she tried to pass another vehicle, then lost control and struck another westbound car, which sent her Explorer into a spin.
The sport utility vehicle spun across four lanes, bounced off the left side barrier and spun back, slamming into the right-side barrier, police said.
Mr. MAHDAI died instantly from massive head injuries when the back of the Explorer was crushed. Ms. COX and her boyfriend, who was in the front passenger seat, were not seriously injured.
Yesterday, Toronto police launched a new traffic safety program called Operation Safe Journey, which they hope will prevent similar tragedies.
The program involves an education campaign and heavier law enforcement. And when police explain why such a program is needed, they point to statistics like these:
Last year, 19 per cent of Toronto's traffic-related fatalities involved alcohol, and 31 per cent involved excessive speed. On average, three people die in Canada every day from drinking-and-driving-related traffic accidents.
"If we start to say this is a fact of life, we're in big trouble," said Detective Paul LOBSINGER of traffic services. "This is unacceptable."
Several grief counsellors spoke with students at Lincoln M. Alexander Secondary School in Mississauga yesterday, where Mr. MAHDAI formerly attended classes.
A memorial with his picture was set up outside the principal's office.
Academics were never Mr. MAHDAI's strong suit and he dropped out midway through Grade 12 in January. But he loved auto body class and dreamed of driving big-rig trucks across North America, said his uncle, Surindranath MAHARAJ.
His father's heart complications and mother's diabetes have kept the pair, immigrants from Trinidad and Tobago, out of work. Ravi often spent weekends unloading cake and bread from delivery trucks with his uncle to earn a bit of cash.
His siblings include a brother and five sisters ranging in age from 9 to 26. When one of them needed help, "everybody thought of Ravi," said his sister, Reshma, 22. "Ravi could fix it."

Taxi driver killed in street-racer collision
From Torstar News Service, Page 3
Two street-racing teenagers have been charged with criminal negligence causing death after a collision that killed a taxi driver who was to become a Canadian citizen tomorrow, police say.
Cab driver Tahir KHAN had dropped off his last fare and was headed south on Mount Pleasant Road at 10: 20 p.m. Tuesday when one of two Mercedes driven by 18-year-olds racing north at around 140 km/h in the 50 km/h zone T-boned the taxi as it turned left onto Whitehall Road, drilling the cab into a utility pole, police say.
KHAN, 46, died instantly, and the driver of the mangled 1999 model silver Mercedes escaped with just a few scratches. The driver of the other car fled, returning to the scene after ditching his car a few blocks away, posing as a bystander, police say, noting one of the Mercedes drivers had a copy of the popular video game Need For Speed in the car.
KHAN was to become Canadian citizen tomorrow after six years here -- a day he'd long looked forward to, because it meant he was one step closer to being reunited with his wife, whom he hoped to bring over from Pakistan.
The accused are university students -- believed to be studying at Ryerson and York -- and are from North York. One lives in a tony neighbourhood north of the Bridle Path. Police would not say whether the teens' parents own the cars.
And as police yesterday questioned what influence the game may have played and KHAN's Friends grappled with his death, the two accused made a brief court appearance.
“It's a horrible irony,” said Det. Paul LOBSINGER about the presence of the video game. “Some have said this is life imitating art but I don't know,” LOBSINGER said. “Are games the cause? Absolutely not. But, it is rather ironic.&rdquo
Police say alcohol was not a factor.

Cabbie killed by racing Mercedes
By Isabel TEOTONIO, Staff Reporter with files from Nick PRON, Henry STANCU, Dale Anne FREED and David GROSSMAN
Cab driver Tahir KHAN had just dropped off his last fare and was headed south on Mount Pleasant Rd. It was 10: 20 p.m.
Racing north were two Mercedes driven by 18-year-olds, each pushing 140 km/h in a 50 km/h zone, police say. Next to one driver was the popular video game Need For Speed.
As the Mercedes rounded a bend, the taxi made a left turn on to Whitehall Rd. A loud crash shattered the still of Tuesday night.
One of the Mercedes, a silver 1999 model, T-boned the taxi, drilling it into a utility pole, police say.
KHAN, 46, died instantly, and the driver of the mangled Mercedes escaped with just a few scratches. The driver of the other car fled, returning to the scene after ditching his car a few blocks away, posing as a bystander, police say.
It was a tragic end to KHAN's life, which was brimming with hope as he looked forward to becoming a Canadian citizen tomorrow. It was a day he'd long looked forward to, because it meant he was one step closer to being reunited with his wife, whom he hoped to bring over from Pakistan.
The accused are university students -- believed to be studying at Ryerson and York -- and both had attended St. Andrew's College, a prestigious private school in Aurora, graduating in June 2004. One played on St. Andrew's football team, and both were average students who never got in trouble, said head football coach Courtney SHRIMPTON. One of them lives a tony neighbourhood just north of the Bridle Path. Yesterday, police would not comment on whether the cars belonged to the teens' parents.
As police yesterday questioned what influence the game may have played and KHAN's Friends grappled with his death, the two accused made a brief court appearance.
"It's a horrible irony," said Det. Paul LOBSINGER about the presence of the video game, which allows players to choose high-end cars and race them through city streets while being pursued by police cruisers.
"Some have said this is life imitating art but I don't know," said LOBSINGER, adding "a game is a game, but when you get behind the wheel it's reality."
LOBSINGER described the game as an "ultra-violent driving simulation, fighting simulation and criminal simulation."
"But are games the cause?" he asked. "Absolutely not. But, it is rather ironic."
Police say alcohol was not a factor, and that it's not clear if the video game was played before the two went out driving.
"I have no words to explain why this happened," said cabbie Muhammad NASEEM, who was a friend of KHAN's. "He was a very nice man, very quiet, very polite, all the good words you can think of can be used to describe him."
Earlier this week, recalled NASEEM, KHAN had told him that he planned to return home to the district of Jhang, in Pakistan's Punjab region. KHAN's mother was ill and he wanted to be with her. He also looked forward to visiting his brother, sister and wife of 15 years, whom he's helped support since moving to Canada almost six years ago.
He was looking forward to returning home as a Canadian citizen, something he would have become during a citizenship ceremony at the Scarborough Town Centre.
"He was so excited," said KHAN's friend Munir AHMAD, while visiting the coroner's office to identify the body. "He was planning to bring his family here."
Last night, a large group of Friends gathered at the east-end apartment KHAN shared with Shahid HASAN to call his family in Pakistan and break the devastating news.
"He had lots of Friends," said HASAN, who has lived with KHAN for the last five years in Scarborough. "He was a very kind man who was helpful to everyone."
Jim BELL, manager of Diamond Taxi, said KHAN had been with the company for three years and called his death a tragedy for everyone involved.
"Those kids must be feeling absolutely terrible and the parents of these kids who were racing must be feeling devastated."
Charged with criminal negligence causing death are Alexander RYAZANOV and Wang-Piao Dumani ROSS. ROSS is also charged with failing to stop after an accident causing death.
Outside the courtroom where the two teens made a brief appearance at bail court in College Park yesterday, the aunt of one described them as "really good boys."
"It's tragic, it's horrible what happened. Now I am going to be worried about him staying in jail with criminals."
Because lawyers for the pair weren't available, the two must return for separate bail hearings -- ROSS tomorrow and RYAZANOV on Monday. Neither has a criminal record.
The two long-time Friends chatted quietly to each other as they sat in the prisoner's box.
The Crown says it will oppose their release on two grounds: public outrage over the death and the likelihood of reoffending.

Alcohol suspected in crash
Teen spoke to his mother minutes before death
37-year-old driver now facing charges
By Curtis RUSH, Staff Reporter
Ravi MADHAI was on the cellphone to his mother just after 10 p.m. Monday. The 17-year-old Mississauga teen had been late getting home to help his uncle, who delivers baked goods. His family was worried.
His mom, Ragginni, finally got in touch with him, frantically asking where he was. "I said, 'When are you coming home?' And he said, 'Right now, Mommy,'" a distraught Ragginni said. "That was the last I heard."
Five minutes later, a crash ended his life.
MADHAI's mother didn't learn of her son's death until police arrived at the family home at 3 a.m. yesterday. They told her MADHAI was in the rear passenger seat of a Ford sport utility vehicle that had crashed on the westbound Gardiner Expressway just east of Park Lawn Rd. at 10: 22 p.m.
According to police, the sport utility vehicle was going too fast and swerved to avoid another vehicle, before overcorrecting, travelling across four lanes and smashing into the concrete barrier.
The impact drove MADHAI's head through the side window, and he was pinned between the barrier and the vehicle, suffering fatal head injuries.
The teenager didn't have a chance even though he was wearing a seatbelt, police say.
The driver and a 21-year-old man in the front seat, both Friends of the victim, were hurt only slightly. Alleging that alcohol was involved, police have charged the driver.
MADHAI, who had a brother and five sisters, had left home earlier to fix "someone's van," his mother said. Some in the family speculate that he wound up playing pool with the Friends.
The Grade 12 student at Lincoln M. Alexander Secondary School in Mississauga was "a go-getter" and a "jack of all trades," said his sister Reshma, 22.
Born in Montreal to parents originally from Trinidad, he moved to Toronto with his family in 1998.
"He wasn't a bad kid. He wasn't involved in any trouble. He was just stubborn, but he was turning his attitude around," said his aunt, Vashty MAHARAJ.
There was a sad twist the day after, as investigating detective Paul LOBSINGER appeared at a news conference after a sleepless night for the launch of a police road safety campaign, Operation Safe Journey, aimed at preventing such tragedies. One poster for for it advises: "Plan Ahead. Choose Your Ride."
Emergency personnel responded to 11,436 vehicle incidents in Toronto last year, up 8 per cent, Fire Chief William STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said at the news conference. "These numbers are alarming," he told reporters.
LOBSINGER agreed, expressing worry that drivers aren't taking the threat of an accident seriously enough. "These accidents take a toll on everyone," he said.
Also at the event was former member of provincial parliament David TSUBOUCHI, who lost his father in a still unsolved hit-and-run last year.
Carolyn SWINSON, co-president of the Toronto chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, spoke of the accident that killed her son Rob in 1993.
The female driver who struck his Volvo was 2½ times over the legal alcohol limit and had held a driver's licence only 10 days.
She was acquitted because the judge refused to allow a breath test as evidence, SWINSON said.
And, just as it happened to the MADHAI family, a police officer came to deliver the news.
"My knees buckled and I fell to the floor," SWINSON recalled.
"My heart just goes out to this family. There's nothing more painful than the sudden death of a child."
In this week's case, Dawn Marie COX, 37, is charged with impaired driving causing death and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.
She appeared in court yesterday and was released on bail.
