A plane from the Canadian Air Force Snowbirds stunt squadron crashed in the garden of a house in Kamloops, British Columbia, on Sunday while making an exhibition in honour of the personnel fighting the coronavirus.
The aircraft, a jet, caught fire after crashing into the ground, but there are no reports of any casualties from the aircraft or the affected area, reports Canadian public television “CBC”.
British Columbia Health Minister Adrian Dix has tweeted that a person has been taken to hospital following the incident.
The fighter jet crashed shortly after taking off from Kamloops Airport. According to eyewitnesses cited by the CBC, the aircraft was following another plane when it suddenly started a climb, turned around and went down.
A video broadcast shows two columns of smoke coming out of the aircraft as it fell and at least one person being propelled out of the aircraft shortly before impact.
