A Canadian Forces pilot escaped serious injury after his plane crashed at the Atlanta Air Show on Sunday.

A statement from the Canadian Forces Snowbirds says Capt. Kevin Domon-Grenier was forced to eject his CT-114 Tutor shortly before their performance this afternoon above the Atlanta Motor Speedway.

“Capt Domon-Grenier made it safely to the ground and is okay. The aircraft fell in an unpopulated area and no one was injured,” read the statement.

The Canadian forces adds its too early to speculate on the cause of the incident.
