WATCH: Pilot flies under Ottawa bridge, sparks investigation


OTTAWA – A stunt by the pilot of a float plane on the Ottawa River left some members of a local rowing club in shock.

A video shows the plane taking off from the Ottawa River and flying below the MacDonald-Cartier Bridge.

A group of rowers on the water look on, and some can be heard screaming and yelling as the plane flies under the bridge that connects Ottawa and Gatineau, Que.

The incident happened Saturday as a group from the Ottawa Rowing Club were preparing for a regatta.

Transport Canada is investigating.
