当局和目击者说,周日一架加拿大空军飞机在不列颠哥伦比亚省的一处民宅坠毁,当时它正在为冠状病毒大流行前线工作人员进行庆祝表演。

The Royal Canadian Air Force said in a statement that the incident occurred in Kamloops, northeast of Vancouver. It wasn’t immediately clear if anyone was injured or killed in the crash or what caused it.

The flight was part of “Operation Inspiration,” a nationwide mission aimed at saluting first responders and other essential workers. The Snowbirds are a military acrobatics squadron based in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.

A video that appeared to capture the crash showed two jets taking off and flying side by side for a few seconds. One of them veers into the sky and seconds later is seen spiraling toward the ground.

一段视频似乎捕捉到坠机画面,该视频显示有两架飞机起飞,并排飞行了几秒钟。其中一架飞机转向天空,几秒钟后就可以看到它盘旋着冲向地面。

It “sounded like a gunshot outside my window,” said Turatus, 30.

She saw a "big black circle ring of smoke” in the sky, she said, adding that part of the plane’s wreckage was in the street, and she could see a wing sticking out of a neighbor’s garage. Photos showed the structure on fire.

她说,她在天空中看到一个“巨大的黑色烟圈”,她还说在街上看到飞机的一部分残骸,她还看到邻居的车库里伸出来一个机翼。照片显示这座建筑着火了。

It wasn't clear if anyone was home at the time.
