A Canadian Forces Snowbird jet has crashed in Kamloops. David Reid had just finished setting up his account and news of a downed Snowbirds plane was one of the first tweets that popped up on his feed.

"This is a developing situation".

The RCAF has announced that they are working on "determining the status of our personnel and supporting emergency personnel".

This article will be updated as more information becomes available.

"Emergency crews including Kamloops Airport's aircraft rescue fleet are responding to an aircraft crash off airport involving a Canadian Snowbirds jet", wrote Kamloops Airport in a tweet.

The jet was taking off from Kamloops Airport alongside another Tutor when it suddenly climbed away from its teammate, veered off and appeared to tumble from the sky, crashing into a residential area.

Witnesses report seeing the pilot eject from the aircraft before the crash.

The plane crash caused massive flames that initially sent Ross and his neighbours into shock. The house is on fire.

"I just started running down the street".

"I saw what looked like a parachute about, say, 20 feet over the house, and it disappeared from sight, and the parachute hadn't fully deployed yet - it was still sort of straight up and down", Kenny Hinds said.

Debris was scattered across the neighborhood near the airport in Kamloops, 418 kilometers northeast of Vancouver, British Columbia. After gaining some altitude and making an aileron roll, one of them suddenly took a steep nosedive and two streams of smoke were seen ejecting out of it, followed by a loud bang. "I didn't see the pilot bail out but he bailed out late apparently".

"I wanted to watch them", he said, noting he saw trouble within seconds. We thought we were getting bombed or something. "It was incredible. I can't believe I saw it".

Resident Annette Schoneville told CBC that she witnessed the jet crash as she was having coffee with friends nearby.

Kamloops RCMP confirmed Sunday afternoon that they received a report that a Snowbird plane had crashed into a residence on Glenview Avenue, at about 11:42 a.m. local time. No further information was given.

The team had been on a cross-Canada tour "to salute Canadians doing their part to fight the spread of Covid-19", according to the Snowbirds website. It was aimed at boosting morale as Canadians continue to struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The crash happened on Sunday morning, shortly after the jet took off.

Operation Inspiration followed a similar initiative south of the border, where the USA military's own flight demonstration teams have been flying in honour of front-line workers and first responders.

The Snowbirds are Canada's equivalent of the US Air Force Thunderbirds or the UK's Red Arrows.

The 39 year old pilot Capt. Andrew MacKay ejected safely before the aircraft crashed in a field in a rural part of the city.
