“Capt Domon-Grenier made it safely to the ground and is okay. The aircraft fell in an unpopulated area and no one was injured,” read the statement.
The Canadian forces adds its too early to speculate on the cause of the incident.
The team is deeply relieved to learn that Snowbird 5, Capt Kevin Domon-Grenier, is safe and that no one was injured following today’s incident at the Atlanta Air Show. Our thoughts are with the Snowbird team as they expertly handle this mishap. Today’s performance is cancelled.
