A 419 AW(F) Squadron aircraft was returning to North Bay at night and in heavy fog that would normally require a Ground Controlled Approach (GCA). However, the VHF Radio was not working and the pilot was left to his own devices. Several passes were made in order to try and align with the runway. During the landing attempt, the aircraft stalled in the final turn and impacted scrub bush near the end of the runway. The aircraft was destroyed but fortunately the pilot and navigator survived, although they were hospitalized with injuries.
Pilot was a F/O Field and radar/navigator was F/O J.Yves Houde
