    Capt. Kevin Domon-Grenier, a pilot with the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, ejected from his aircraft shortly before the squadron was due to perform, the Snowbirds announced on Twitter on Sunday. 

    Domon-Grenier’s CT-114 Tutor crashed prior to the show’s opening,  Airshow officials said. He made it safely to the ground and is OK, the CF Snowbirds said. 

    Nobody was injured when the plane crashed in an unpopulated area, according to the Snowbirds.
