Kamloops This Week is reporting that a Snowbird Jet has crashed into a house in Kamloops, British Columbia.
Witnesses were reporting smoke rising from the area while others said the house the plane had crashed into was on fire.
Gurjit Sidhu witnessed the crash and told KTW a pilot was seen on the roof of a house, reportedly with back and/or neck injuries.
“I just saw, in the sky, something falling. I saw a pilot ejected, then I heard a big noise, like a bomb,” Sidhu said.
Another witness said he saw two jets take off together and all looked normal as they rose above the airport.
“All of a sudden, one of the planes suddenly went up, straight up, quite high, then it started dropping and doing a barrel roll,” he said. “It did a few spirals and I saw the ejector seat pop out. Then I saw a big fireball, an explosion.”
The Snowbirds squadron were to continue their cross-Canada tour by heading to Vancouver lsland from the Kamloops airport.
