A bird may have caused the fatal crash of a Canadian Air Force acrobatic patrol plane two weeks ago, the Defense Department said on Monday. A video shows a bird near the air intake of an engine during takeoff. The Snowbirds’ patrol aircraft crashed on May 17 shortly after takeoff from Kamloops, British Columbia airport, along with another aircraft. The two occupants of the aircraft were able to eject before the aircraft crashed, but one of them, Captain Jennifer Casey, 35, died from his injuries. The investigation authority’s report to the Department of Defense indicates that the CT-114 aircraft gained altitude, then left the formation and initiated a left turn before making a dive spin.
. “The most difficult part of the investigation begins when we dig more to understand how and why it happened,” said the director of flight safety and investigation authority at the defense ministry. The Snowbirds patrol was completing an east-to-west tour of British Columbia to boost the morale of Canadians during the pandemic caused by the new coronavirus. The CT-114 Tutor aircraft fleet has temporarily suspended flights since the accident. ats, dpa
