Fact: The crash was at the same place Air Canada 183-The Gimli Glider-made its emergency landing....Gimli, Manitoba, Canada.
This modified version of the de Havilland Canada DHC-4 Caribou which had undergone conversion to turbine power was being tested on 27 August 1992. The gust-lock system had not been fully disengaged ahead of the flight. The rudder and aileron locks were also fully engaged. Once airborne, the aircraft was uncontrollable and crashed, killing all onboard.
