600-700 cars around London International Airport today. Huge support for these guys, unlike anything I've ever seen. A day to remember.

I wonder when they trek to BC if they will base at Abbotsford, then head to Comox. It is really nice that they are hitting every town possible, and the support for them is amazing.

Looks like one of the Snowbirds has crashed just after take off. Witnesses say the pilot ejected.

“The planes just lifted up and they were flying low and then they started pulling up after they gained some altitude. One plane started to turn left at a sharp angle and then started dropping (like a stunt) nose down. After dropping for a second, I saw a small explosion and saw the pilot eject then the plane just drop and exploded.

Thoughts and prayers go out to all involved. The aircraft crashed into a residential area and from video footage, it looks like the aircraft was occupied x2.
