Narrative:
Following a pleasure flight in the area of Saint-Hubert, Quebec, the Cessna 150H, registration C-FNLD, serial number 15068912, joined the left-hand circuit downwind for Runway 29 at Mascouche Airport, Quebec, to come to a complete stop. At the same time, a Cessna 172M, registration C-GEYG took off from Runway 29 for touch-and-goes on the runway following a left-hand circuit. The two aircraft collided in flight on the final leg for Runway 29 and crashed on the highway by an overpass abreast of Mascouche Airport. There were two occupants on board each aircraft, and all four suffered fatal injuries.

For an undetermined reason, the crew of the Cessna 172 did not maintain safe separation by stretching the downwind leg of the circuit to take the presence of the Cessna 150 into consideration. Several factors such as a failure of the radio equipment, the appearance of the aircraft, the environment and a lack of attention, may have contributed to the occurrence.
