Canada Plane Crash – level 3
The Royal Canadian Air Forces, RCAF, were doing a flyover across the country to show support for Canadians helping to fight the spread of the coronavirus.
The Snowbirds perform aerobatic stunts for the public, and for the past two weeks they have been flying across the country to lift up Canadians during difficult times.
A crash happened at the Kamloops Airport, British Columbia, on Sunday morning, shortly after the take-off. A video posted on social media showed two aerobatic jets climbing into the air, when one of the jets caught on fire. One pilot was able to eject before the jet crashed into a residential area. It hit the front garden of a home in Kamloops, and residents ran outside in an attempt to put out the fire.
One member of the crew died, and another was injured. According to the Air Forces, his injuries were not life threatening.
Difficult words: aerobatic (skillful changes of position of a plane, that planes perform for entertainment and sport), eject (to come out of a machine when a button is pressed), put out (to stop the fire).
