Solemn scenes as Legion pays tribute to fallen Snowbirds captain

On Thursday, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 52 Kamloops and 886 Wing (Overlander) RCAF Association held a tribute ceremony to honour Capt. Jennifer Casey, the Snowbirds public affairs officer who died when the jet she was in crashed on May 17 after taking off from Kamloops Airport.

The ceremony also offered support for pilot Capt. Richard MacDougall, who was injured in the incident, and for the Canadian Forces Snowbirds.
