It’s working for me but nothing wrong with more articles and more info. I’m hopeful there were no casualties or injuries sustained from the homes occupants if they were home at the time of impact..

So tragic. Would be horrific on any given day, let alone considering the nature of their mission. Here's a pic of their most recent visit to YEG.

I truly hope there is no lost of life or lives....dam...dam...dam..

sweet jesus just watched the film...something definitely went south as the jet gained altitude to get within the envelope to have a chance to eject safely in which you prepare to abandoned the aircraft or have a quick look to see if you can safely return to the runway...the ejection did not look promising....but if there is an angel please be there today.

This was meant to be an “inspirational” tour to brighten up spirits.
2020 is quite the gong show so far and we still have 7 more months of it.

By any logic , these planes should have been replaced decades ago, the usual government foot dragging and lack of urgency. Looks like some kind of mechanical failure in the video.

you need to stand down...now...k.

these jets may be old etc but the maintenance on them is way overkill as in pretty much a very new old jet....

lets not turn this into another forum poop show.

Local radio stations are reporting that the pilot survived, copilot passed away and a home was destroyed. All home occupants are safe

I'm no expert, but from what I saw (3 vids) it looks like 'engine failure'.

Love watching the Snowbirds. They were in Killam last summer and put on a great show. Pray to God that the occupants of the jet end up being O.K.

Sounds like one fatality, a woman was found in a backyard that was on the plane, a retired nurse went to help but the injuries were too bad.

You're right, shooting from the hip doesn't always pay, sorry. Didn't realize at the time there was a fatality, sad.

Unhappy

Another sad day for the CAF, following so closely on the heels of the crew lost in the helicopter crash.

Sincere and heartfelt condolences to all the affected family, and the Snowbirds team, and all CAF personnel. Truly a tragedy.
