There are witnesses Say that they saw the pilot eject from the plane when they saw it crash. People watched the video posted to Twitter when Snowbirds flew by, showing the moment when the plane began to descend. The two Snowbird planes were flying side by side before they separated. One of the planes suddenly fell shortly after.

The Snowbird flight plan, called Operation Inspiration, was launched in Nova Scotia earlier this month and has the team’s iconic 9-row formation. It is modeled after the US military flight demonstration team to pay tribute to frontline personnel who are struggling in the new coronavirus outbreak.

Due to the rain on Sunday and low visibility, Snowbird delayed the start of the flight. Witness Mike Trafford, who lives near the airport, said he saw a sudden spark during the Snowbird flight, the pilot ejected the plane, and the plane swooped down.
