One member of the Canadian Forces Snowbirds flight crew was killed and another seriously injured on Sunday in a crash that saw one of the famous squadron’s jets explode before landing on a Kamloops house.
The incident took place seconds after a pair of Snowbirds aircraft took off from Kamloops Airport at about 11:45 a.m. Dozens of versions of video of the crash and its aftermath circulated on social media in the hours that followed.
In a statement on Sunday evening, the Royal Canadian Air Force confirmed one squadron member died in the crash and another suffered serious injuries.
The injured pilot landed on the roof of 868 Schreiner St., about two blocks east of the airport. His parachute could be seen wrapped around the home’s chimney. Kamloops Fire Rescue crews used a ladder truck to get him down and into an ambulance.
The airplane struck a home at 2454 Glenview Ave., around the corner and six doors down from the Schriener Street house. A witness told KTW the home’s two elderly occupants made it out safely.
