Sorry.

Yes. Pilot's injured, second officer in plane didn't make it.
So the pilot can eject to save himself, but the passenger seat is fixed?

Not sure. Other reports I've read seemed to imply that both seats can eject but in this case witnesses noted there were only two explosions prior to the crash: first was the canopy & second was pilot's seat. Whether there was a malfunction of the ejection seat for the passenger or if she even had a chance to activate it seems to be a matter of question.

Been there done that.

The entire paywall thing makes no sense to me. When checking out a story I try to get as close to the source as possible. So believe me there is no way I am giving a pound of flesh to every rag which happens to be close to a story that interests me. Strangely on the soused side of 49, local TV stations often have better and more open coverage than their 'newspaper' counterparts.

All those paywalls really accomplish is limiting potential viewership to those living in that locale.

Yep. Seldom does any website have an exclusive. If I cross a paywall, I'll just search it out elsewhere. I'm sure the non-paywalled websites are happy for the visits.

Snowbird investigation focusing on possible bird strike before fatal crash

Quote:
Canadian air force crash investigators are looking at a bird strike as the probable cause of the crash of a Snowbird demonstration jet in Kamloops, British Columbia last month.

The accident killed Capt. Jenn Casey, the public affairs officer for the aerobatics team.

In a preliminary report issued Monday, investigators say video footage from the crash showed a bird was in very close proximity to the right engine intake during take-off.

It's possible the bird struck the engine's intake, the report suggested.

Read the news release from RCAF
The jet was climbing at the time, but then turned and went into a steep nose dive before hitting the ground in a residential neighbourhood.

Both Casey and the pilot, Capt. Richard MacDougall, ejected.

The aircraft was destroyed on impact.

"The investigation is focusing on environmental factors (birdstrike) as well as the performance of the escape system," said the report.

MacDougall was injured, but is expected to make a full recovery. The investigation is ongoing and it could be months before a final verdict on the exact cause of the accident is issued.
