The single engine airplane departed La Minerve, in the Laurentides, in the afternoon, on a flight to a fishing camp located by a small lake northeast of Chibougamau. En route, the airplane crashed in unknown circumstances near Lake Boulène, about 100 km south of Chibougamau. The wreckage was spotted few hours later by the crew of a RCAF C-130 Hercules in a remote area. A passenger was injured while three other occupants, among them pilot Jim Duggan, were killed.
