My sympathies to the Captain's friends and family may you rest in peace .

"Up, up the long delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,
where never lark, or even eagle, flew;
and, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
the high untrespassed sanctity of space,
put out my hand and touched the face of God."

Man oh man.  Deepest condolences to the member and her family and hopes for a full recovery for the pilot.  Nova Scotia and the RCAF must be wondering which gods they have angered.  Between Covid and some personal stuff over this past winter, I'm voting for a do-over.

From the RCAF FB Page:

Capt Casey's Homecoming to Nova Scotia

Join us in honouring Captain Jennifer Casey, Public Affairs Officer for the Canadian Forces Snowbirds. Captain Casey’s homecoming to Halifax will be streamed LIVE on this page on Sunday, May 24 at 5 p.m. Atlantic Daylight Time.

Captain Casey was lost in an aircraft crash in Kamloops, BC, during Operation INSPIRATION on May 17th.


I believe the official route is being made public today...I'll post it once I see it.

From the Halifax Today website:

Participants and spectators are encouraged to wear the Snowbirds colours -- red and white -- or Habs jerseys, Tragically Hip apparel, or Star Wars clothing -- all things Jenn was a fan of, according to her family.

The CAF says there has been a last-minute route change and full details on the route will be shared tomorrow. For now, the family says the route will go through the North end of Halifax and is long enough to ensure two metres of distancing for spectators.

From the Canadian Forces Snowbirds FB page: 

Captain Jennifer Casey will arrive in Halifax on Sunday, May 24 at 5:00 p.m. ADT. There will be a motorcade to honour her final trip home starting shortly after her arrival at the airport. If you would like to pay your respects as the motorcade passes, please adhere to COVID-19 guidelines. Capt Casey’s family encourages you to wear red and white (the Snowbird colours) in her honour.

Update: Please note that the procession will not exit the Halifax Airport via Bell Blvd, but will instead proceed from the Shell Aerocentre onto Barnes Drive, right onto Baldwin Drive, left onto Pratt & Whitney Drive, right onto Aerotech Dr and then left onto the exit for Highway 102 Southbound to Halifax.
