An RCAF CF-101B Voodoo fighter plane (serial 17452) was holding short of runway 11, preparing for an air intercept mission. Viscount CF-THA touched down some 1000 feet past the runway 11 threshold and while the airplane was still on the runway, the Voodoo was cleared for takeoff. Some 20 seconds later the Voodoo collided with the tail of the Viscount, killing a stewardess and one passenger. The Voodoo caught fire but continued flight. It climbed to 1200 feet asl where both crew members ejected.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The controller having assumed in error that the Viscount was turning off at the high speed taxi strip, cleared the Voodoo aircraft for takeoff before the Viscount was clear of the active runway."
