Snowbird down

(1/8) > >>

WLJ:
It would appear the plane caught fire after takeoff from a witness in the BBC report

Quote

Witness Annette Schonewille told CBC News: "The one plane continued and the other one, there was two puffs, it looked like puffs of smoke and one... was a ball of fire," she said.

"No noise, it was strange, and then the plane just did a cartwheel and fell right out of the sky. Just boom, straight down, and then a burst of black, black smoke."

    A Nova Scotian storyteller, she was a journalist before joining as a Public Affairs Officer.

    Across Canada and the United States, she brought stories and smiles.
    She was one of us, our sister.

    Captain Jenn Casey died today.

    Please say her name.
    Remember Jenn.

RoadKingLarry:
Will Canada count this as a Covid-19 death?

WLJ:
Video and photos of the incident plus some details of the team, plane, and the ejection system.
It would appear the fire/smoke reported by a witness in the BBC report was from the ejection.

French G.:
This is what I worried about when we started those stupid flyovers. Unnecessary combination of combat aircraft and densely populated areas. Never a big fan of air shows, too much risk, no reward. As for this one my bet is engine ate a bird and then spontaneously disassembled.
