News in Review Death in the Sky: A Snowbird Falls

In early December 2004, two jets belonging to the Canadian aerobatic team, the Snowbirds, were involved in a mid-air collision in Saskatchewan. One pilot, Capt. Miles Selby, was killed. The other pilot managed to parachute safely to the ground. News in Review investigates the aftermath of the deadly collision, and we’ll look at how it happened. We’ll also review the proud history of the Snowbirds, and consider some of the questions clouding their future.
