Aircraft of the Canadian aerobatic team crashed into a residential area north of Vancouver

Messages about the crash of one of the flight crews in Canada came. The incident occurred about 400 km north of Vancouver - in the province of British Columbia. We are talking about the Snowbirds plane, which is part of the Canadian Air Force.


Eyewitnesses filmed the moment the plane crashed. He (the plane) appears a few hundred meters from people filming a video.

The aircraft flies first in a twin version, then it appeared in a single version. At one point, his speed drops, after which he falls into a tailspin. The pilot carries out bailouts. The car crashes and explodes.

According to some reports, the plane belonged to the fleet of the Canadair Tutor aerobatic team. He performed a demonstration flight, which included showing aerobatics.

It is reported that the wreckage of aircraft are found within a radius of tens of meters in the vicinity of the Kamloops airfield.

It is said that the plane crashed in one of the residential quarters, which led to a fire that engulfed the local resident's house. Local media report the death of one person. This is Captain Jennifer Casey.

The reports noted that the aerobatic team was lifted to "support the local population during the pandemic."

Local resident:

I live literally a hundred meters from the crash site. I heard a terrible roar. Then she ran out into the street. Everything burned. The wreckage of the aircraft could be seen on the ground and roofs of houses.

      I agree with you, it’s a pity for the residents, how can one not recall the winged expression of Chernomyrdin: “We wanted the best, it turned out, as always.” - They wanted to support the people during the pandemic, but it’s not the best idea to perform aerobatics over residential areas what

      Bad ejection system, I didn’t see a parachute. The video once again shows whether women need to become pilots or better to be with children.

        The moment of bailout is visible, but the opening of the parachute is really not visible. If only before the ground beyond the crown of trees? Just remember the footage of our bailout at the air show - about 20 meters above the ground from a cabin turned upside down to the ground. Rescue tools worked perfectly.

        The plane is double, the moment of pair bailout is clearly visible, one of the pilots remained alive, and they will find out what happened to her.

        This does not show anything. Being a housewife, she could also die in the wreckage of the house destroyed by this plane

          Do you have a pilot and a housewife at the same risk? I have not read such nonsense for a long time!

            No, not the same. But this particular case does not show ANYTHING, the chances of dying here were high for both pilots and those on the ground, since the plane fell on residential buildings. Remember who died in the fall of our MiG-23 in Belgium.
            And so in the Israeli Air Force, one of the most militant and often used in combat situations, about 250 Pilates

          I’ll add that my aunt (wife of mother’s brother) has a 45-year driving experience. Not a single accident!

        Bad bailout system

        Actually, the plane was born in 1960 ..., the ejection system is not ideal of course (it probably does not provide ejection from the ground), plus the vertical speed is not small there, in that flight configuration only an intelligent system like our K-36 can work reliably. Well, like that. I feel sorry for the pilot. It is not clear what happened, like an oblique loop was being performed, and why it was suddenly turned around, as if the aileron reversal had occurred. something is not clear, like a control failure, but there are tough traction ... request

    Is it a pilotess or did she die in a ruined house? In any case, my condolences to family and friends.
    At the same time in Russia
    On May 13, 2020, an unusual message appeared in the Novosibirsk sky, which the pilot “wrote”, changing the flight path. Oleg Kobzev in a private jet brought up the interrogative phrase "Where is everything?" But, viewers from the ground could not read this phrase, since the plane is small and does not leave traces. The radars captured the creative process - for an hour, the FlightRadar portal showed online how the pilot carefully wrote out each letter.

      Most likely he according to Glonas, or JiPS wrote it out, rather turned off navigation on turns. And so I like the Radar portal, it's interesting to look at the prediction. There is a portal and military aircraft shows. but only for the rupee hedgehog.

    And where are the western screaming, what a horror, horror the plane fell in a residential area. Did not notice. Or they only notice what is happening in Russia. But still the pilot is sorry, pretty woman, very sorry.

    The word - pilots (s) a, which is used in the comments, is awkward.
    Those who sent the flight team to residential areas should be judged.

      I recall the Lviv airfield "Skyliv" .. Toponar catapulted already on the ground (spinal injury). Tried to get the plane out. But all responsibility was hanged on him and not on those who planned the flight. They still have general pensions, honor and respect. And, it was them who needed to be judged.

        Yes, I agree, the level of organization and management of flights was just wild.

      Pilotess is a quite normal and quite beautiful word, complies with the rules of the Russian Language. And there is an explanation why 2 sec.

    The plane was controlled by a surviving pilot.
    I’m not sure that the deceased girl is also a pilot, it’s written that he is a “public relations specialist”.
    Apparently the clerk took a ride.
    The plane is not bad, although old, in service for about 60 years (!)
    Its bailout system provides safe escape from 50 meters, which is not bad at all (but apparently 50 m when bailing up). For example, on the L-39, the minimum ejection height is 300m.
    What happened, most likely after a surge in the engine, the pilot pulled up the plane, trying to gain a little height by inertia and while he explained to the girl that it was time to exit, the plane fell off from speed loss and the video shows that they catapulted late and to the ground. Trite was not enough for a split second and a little luck to get out of a turning plane up, not down.
    Sorry for the girl.
    I hope the leadership of the Canadian Air Force will finally replace this junk with something more adequate.
