A Cessna A188B Ag Truck aircraft operated by Clayton Air Service, had just completed a series of flights which involved applying fungicide to a flax field, East of Carrot River, SK, and was en route to the operator's mobile operations base at Arborfield, SK. The aircraft was reported overdue by ground personnel, and was later discovered in a wooded area, 8 nm East of Carrot River, SK. The aircraft had collided with terrain and trees, and was destroyed by a post-crash fire and impact forces. The pilot, the sole occupant, suffered fatal injuries.

Due to the lack of witnesses and the lack of flight data information, as well as the level of destruction by the fire, the investigation could not determine the sequence of events prior to the aerodynamic stall and collision with terrain or the reasons why the aircraft experienced such a stall.
