York Regional Police have released a photo of a person of interest who they say may have information about a fire that broke out on a small airplane at Buttonville Airport back in February.

On Feb. 27, emergency crews were called to the airport, near Highway 404 and 16th Avenue in Markham, at around 11:30 p.m. for reports of a jet on fire.

When crews arrived they found a jet, classified as a Dassault Falcon 50 tri-jet, on fire outside of hanger 5, investigators said.

At the time, police said there was a hole cut into a nearby fence and that the fire seemed suspicious as it appeared gasoline was used.

The Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office has since determined the fire was an arson.

Police said the plane had been parked at the airport for a few months.

An airline pilot, obviously. Look at that square jaw, the determined stare, the sun glasses. It's obvious.

 

BTW the photo looks more like some remote hamlet in Nunavut than it does at Buttonville.

Looks like one of the zombies you can find roaming the streets around any Canadian city's taxpayer funded opium den.

More accurate?
