Bandit 22 (BDIT22), a Canadian Forces Tutor, was cleared for a contact approach to the Sault Ste. Marie Airport. Air Ontario flight 294 (ONT294) had been cleared to depart from runway 11. The tower controller attempted to contact BDIT22 but was unsuccessful until the aircraft was on short final for the active runway. BDIT22 saw ONT294 on the runway and conducted a missed approach; the tower controller cancelled the take-off clearance for ONT294 and instructed the crew to hold their position on the runway.
