Summary: Collided with a RCAF CF-101B Voodoo fighter plane on the runway. The controller having assumed in error that the Viscount was turning off at the high speed taxi strip, cleared the Voodoo aircraft for takeoff before the Viscount was clear of the active runway. The Voodoo collided with the tail of the Viscount, killing a stewardess and one passenger. The Voodoo caught fire but continued to fly. It climbed to 1,200 feet where both crew members ejected safely.
