    Snowbirds pilot Capt. Richard MacDougall released from Kamloops hospital



    The pilot of the Snowbirds jet that crashed in Kamloops on Sunday was released from hospital Thursday.

    Capt. Richard MacDougall, accompanied by his family, came out of the Royal Inland Hospital in a wheelchair and was greeted by a group of supporters.

    Members of the Secwepemc Child and Family Services Drumming Group held a drum circle in MacDougall’s honour.

    The hospital shared the news on its Facebook page.

    MacDougall ended up on the roof of a house after he ejected from the CT-114 Tutor Jet shortly after take-off.

    Capt. Jennifer Casey, the Snowbirds public affairs officer, also ejected but did not survive.
