The RCAF Snowbird that crashed in British Columbia on Sunday has been heard across the country, resulting in the death of Captain Jennifer Casey and injuring Captain Richard MacDougall.

MacDougall, who is from New Brunswick, was one of the team's co-ordinators and the pilot of the jet that went down in Kamloops on Sunday.

MacDougall ejected himself from the plane as it was going down, eventually landing on the roof of a house, and is now being treated for his injuries.

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds were sent out on Operation INSPIRATION, a cross-Canada tour in an effort to lift up the spirits of Canadians and acknolwedge the hard work by front-line workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time of the accident, the CF Snowbirds were lifting off from the airport in Kamloops, British Columbia.

Learning of the tragedy, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said, ""For the past two weeks, the Snowbirds have been flying across the country to lift up Canadians during these difficult times. Every day, they represent the very best of Canada and demonstrate excellence through incredible skill and dedication. Their flyovers across the country put a smile on the faces of Canadians everywhere and make us proud."

An investigation into the crash is underway.
