    Tragedy Strikes!!!!

    Over the last several months the RCAF team “Snowbirds” have been flying “Operation Inspiration,” an operation to inspire and encourage Canadian residents from coast to coast, by flying aerial acrobatics over select Canadian cities. Yesterday, May 17th 2020, shortly after taking off from YKA Kamloops, one of the aircraft team crashed into a nearby neighborhood. One member died in the crash, one member has been injured. Unfortunately there was collateral damage in the neighborhood where the crash took place. No cause for the crash has been determined; the matter is still under investigation.


    My prayers go out to all who have been affected by this tragic event.

    So sad.

    They flew quite literally over my house in Kitchener, Ontario following the hydro right-of-way that my backyard abutts. The nine Tudors were in very tight formation as they flew easterly towards downtown, then doubled back to fly south towards nearby Cambridge before we lost sight of them. A very impressive sight and sound.

    May Captain Jennifer Casey rest in peace.
