1 dead in Canadian Forces Snowbird plane crash in B.C.

BY , May 17, 2020 8:08 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

A member of the Canadian Armed Forces died in a Snowbird plane crash in Kamloops today.

The Kamloops Airport says emergency crews were responding to the crash.

The Snowbirds aerobatics team was scheduled to make a trip from Kamloops to Vernon today as part of Operation Inspiration during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Operation Inspiration started in Nova Scotia earlier this month and features the team's signature nine-jet formation.

It was aimed at boosting morale as Canadians continue to struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The scheduled start was delayed because of rain and low visibility.

Operation Inspiration followed a similar initiative south of the border, where the U.S. military's own flight demonstration teams have been flying in honour of front-line workers and first responders
