One dies as Snowbirds jet crashes into residential area in Kamloops, BC

KAMLOOPS | A CT-114 Tutor belonging to the Canadian Forces Snowbirds hasΒ  crashed into a house in Kamloops, British Columbia, killing one and injuring another.

Two a jets belonging to the squadron took off from Kamloops bound for Comox at around 11:30 on Sunday 17th May, but one quickly turned back towards the airport, entered a steep dive and crashed with two people on board.

The Royal Canadian Air Force said: “It is with heavy hearts that we announce that one member of the CF Snowbirds team has died and one has sustained serious injuries.”

The team’s Public Affairs Officer, Captain Jennifer Casey, was killed in the accident. Capt. Casey joined the RCAF in 2014 and previously served as PAO for the CF-18 Demo Team, and joined the Snowbirds last year. On social media, the Snowbirds described Capt. Casey as a “dedicated member” of the team.

“We are deeply saddened and grieve alongside Jenn’s family and friends,” said Lieutenant General Al Meinzinger, Commander of the Royal Canadian Air Force. “Our thoughts are also with the loved ones of Captain MacDougall. We hope for a swift recovery from his injuries.”

The second team member involved, Snowbird #11 Capt. Richard MacDougall, is the team’s advance pilot and coordinator, was able to eject and landed on the roof of a house. He was taken to hospital with serious injuries, but was not thought to be in a life-threatening condition, according to the RCAF.

There do not appear to have been any injuries on the ground.

The Snowbirds are Canada’s national aerobatic team and operate the ageing CT-114 Tutor, a former RCAF training aircraft which was retired from regular service in 2000. The team have recently been performing flypasts across Canada as part of Operation Inspiration, giving thanks to healthcare workers and boosting morale.

The team had been due to leave Kamloops for Kelowna, performing flypasts along the way as part of Operation Inspiration. However, low cloud forced a last-minute change of plan and the team instead announced they would be flying to Comox, from which they would later stage further flybys.

Last year, a Snowbirds aircraft crashed before the Atlanta Airshow following engine problems. The pilot was able to eject and survived with only minor injuries.

“Don’t take the risk”: EAA announce cancellation of AirVenture 2020

OSHKOSH | The Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual AirVenture show has been cancelled officially for 2020 because of continuing uncertainty over the coronavirus pandemic.

The airshow, scheduled for the 20th-26th July, is billed as the world’s largest aviation celebration. It had been due to feature the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, demonstrations and heritage flights from the US Air Force, and an expanded warbird segment to mark the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II.

In an email to EAA members, the CEO of the EAA, Jack Pelton, said: “It is May here in Wisconsin, and unfortunately like many of you across the country, we are still under a stay at home order through May 26. Normally, this is the month when we start our preflight planning for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. By this time, we should have begun ramping up our entire site in preparation for our July convention … But because of circumstances beyond our control, none of this can happen now.”

Mr Pelton also said there was continuing uncertainty over what health guidelines would be in July, and whether large public gatherings will be permitted. “Right now, there are three phases that have been defined in Wisconsin as the recommended procedures,” he said. “As I write this, we are not in Phase 1 yet. Phase 2 restricts gatherings to 50 people. Phase 3 allows for mass gathering with restrictions.”

He added that he could see “no clear path” to meeting health and safety requirements, such as sanitization, separation and personal protection.

“My conclusion is, like in any good flight planning, don’t take the risk,” he said. “Therefore, I have no choice but to cancel AirVenture 2020. Together, we can come back stronger, safer and ready for AirVenture 2021 and create a memorable world class aviation event.”

Most airshows worldwide are cancelled through to the end of June, with a growing number of July, August and September events also being scrapped. For details of the latest cancellations, please visit our global airshow calendar.

Thunderbirds seen with coloured smoke as flypasts with Blue Angels planned across USA

PENSACOLA | The Thunderbirds and Blue Angels are due to perform joint flypasts across the United States over the coming week to boost national unity during the coronavirus pandemic.

Nine F-16s of the Thunderbirds arrived at the Blue Angel’s base in Pensacola on Monday 20th April, fuelling speculation that the two teams would be performing flyovers together. The teams flew together over Pensacola the following day, although the Blue Angels rebuffed reports that further flyovers were planned on social media.

The plans were confirmed on Wednesday at a White House press briefing. Operation America Strong will see both teams performing non-aerobatic flypasts over cities such as Washington DC, Baltimore, New York, Newark, Trenton, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and Austin, according to the Washington Post, although an official list of locations has not been published at the time of writing.

Additionally, the Blue Angels will perform flybys of Miami, Tampa, Tallahassee and Jacksonville, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Detroit, Chicago, Indianapolis, Nashville, New Orleans, Kingsville and Corpus Christi. The Thunderbirds are due to be seen over San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle, the Post said.

The announcement comes just days after the Department of Defense extended its ban on non-essential travel and public outreach activities from the 15th May until the end of June, including the cancellation of military-run shows and military participation in other events.

Also on Wednesday, the Thunderbirds were spotted trailing red and blue smoke over Pensacola. While coloured smoke is common among European and Asian aerobatic teams, and was used by the Thunderbirds in the 1960s, a previous attempt to use coloured smoke with the team’s F-16s were unsuccessful as the hot exhaust caused the coloured dye to burn.

The RSAF Black Knights attempted to use coloured smoke with their F-16s in 2007, but abandoned the plans after the red dye stained crops during a test run, forcing the Air Force to compensate farmers. Other teams have experienced problems with aircraft staining, and with dye clogging up the smoke system.

The use of coloured smoke has not been officially acknowledged by the team, and as a result, it is not clear if, or when, this feature will be seen in public, or whether it will be retained for regular airshows after the end of Operation America Strong.

A post shared by JAKE WARYE (@warye_33) on

The Thunderbirds had already flown over Las Vegas and Colorado as a tribute to healthcare workers as both teams press ahead with their training, despite most airshows being cancelled at least until July.

Flypasts will not include aerobatic manoeuvres and will be planned to avoid areas where crowds may build up, in order to promote social distancing.

USAF cancels all airshows and demo team appearances until mid-May

The United States Air Force will be suspending its outreach programmes due to uncertainty over the coronavirus outbreak.

After two days of individual show cancellations, the Brig. Gen Edward Thomas, the USAF’s director of public affairs, said: “The Air Force is committed to upholding the complete trust and confidence of Americans and our community engagement is the key to those connections. However, due to the uncertainty regarding COVID-19 and to protect our Airmen, their families and the communities that support us, the Department of the Air Force is suspending all outreach activities and support to community events through May 15.

“This includes, but is not limited to, on-base and civilian sponsored air shows, band performances and community engagements and meetings (speaking engagements, community meetings on installations, base tours, Pentagon visits, etc.).

“We will continue to support funeral flyovers on a case-by-case basis. The Air Force will continuously evaluate the situation and provide updates as needed.”

US Navy TACDEMO and Legacy Flight 2020 schedule

The US Navy will support 40 airshows this year with demonstrations and Legacy Flights, but only 11 shows will see full demonstrations, according to an early schedule.

The Super Hornet “TACDEMO” from VFA-106 – rebranded as the Rhino Demo Team – will fly at 11 shows, at which it may also perform Legacy Flights. VFA-125, flying the F-35C Lightning, will fly at ten, performing mini-demonstrations along with Legacy Flights, as will VAQ-129 with the EA-18G Growler.

Meanwhile, VFA-122 will fly Legacy Flights only at nine shows with the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.

Kirby Chambliss hints at Red Bull Air Race revival

Former Red Bull Air Race world champion Kirby Chambliss has suggested the Red Bull Air Race may soon return to the skies, but without the backing of its former title sponsor.

Chambliss, who competed in every series of the Red Bull Air Race, was appearing on Show Center: The Airshow Podcast on the Tuesday 7th January to talk about his upcoming airshow season when he brought up the future of the racing series.

He said: “I’m hearing rumours that there’s a good chance that the races will be coming back. It won’t be under the Red Bull banner, but third quarter this year, there’s some pretty strong indications that a Chinese investor has taken it over, so we’ll see what happens.”

He also said that he hoped Red Bull North America, his long-time sponsor, would be happy for him to compete in a new series either under their brand, or that of a different sponsor.

Chambliss also said that, with no series this year, he would be stepping up his airshow participation, which sees him fly an Edge 540 as part of the Red Bull Air Force. The American pilot said he is already expecting to fly at 18-20 shows this year, up from 12 last season.

The Red Bull Air Race saw highly skilled pilots race modified race planes around a course of inflatable pylons. There were typically eight races per year in later seasons, in locations such as New York, Ascot, Gdynia, Perth, Indianapolis and Chiba. The series, which began in 2003, was cancelled in 2019 when title sponsor Red Bull withdrew its support, citing a lack of outside interest.

US Navy hopes to step up airshow participation with F-35C, F/A-18F demonstrations

LAS VEGAS | The US Navy is planning to step up its airshow commitments this year, with F/A-18F “Tac Demos”, Legacy Flights and F-35C mini-demonstrations.

Although the headlines have largely eluded the US Navy at the International Council of Air Shows Convention so far, news on the Navy’s 2020 plans came at a session on Wednesday 11th November.

According to AirshowStuff.com, it is now clear that the Navy plan to support 42 F/A-18F Super Hornet Tactical Demonstrations and Legacy Flights in 2020, with Tactical Demonstrations coming from VFA-106 in Oceana, VA, and Legacy Flights from VFA-122 in Lemoore, CA. These will take place at shows which are not due to host the Blue Angels, with the exception of Oceana.

The full schedule is awaiting approval, and is not typically published until the spring. However, it could see an increase in “Tac Demos” from the last few seasons, when the Navy has only been able to support a very small number of displays.

The news also confirms that the Tailhook Legacy Flight program will continue into 2020, although it is not clear whether this will include aircraft other than VFA-122’s F/A-18Fs. The program was resurrected in 2018, and expanded in 2019 to include aircraft from multiple units, such as the T-45 Goshawk, T-6 Texan II and EA-18G Growler, all of which are otherwise rare airshow performers.

Perhaps most exciting, however, is the news that the Navy will be setting up a new F-35C Demonstration Team in 2020, flown by VFA-125 in Lemoore. The news was first released over the summer by ICAS, but quickly rebutted by the Navy, and finally confirmed at the Convention. However, the team will not yet perform a full demonstration profile.

The F-35C has already flown a small number of mini-demonstrations in US Navy hands, most recently at the Fort Worth Alliance Airshow, so next year’s displays may be similar to those previewed this year. However, forming an official demonstration team is a major step towards flying full, regular demonstrations in the future.
