Sunuva*itch! If this keeps up the Tutor will replace the Sea King as Canada's most crashed aircraft.

There is a reason that the tutors are used as training aids.

Here's a list of Snowbird incidents/accidents from today's Toronto Sun:
It would seem we can count yesterday's crash as a mechanical failure- we could see some kind of problem at the back of the plane. We saw some smoke and then the pilot ejected from the plane,” said Susan Trevisanutto.(from http://www.airforce.dnd.ca/news/2005/08/25_e.asp)
Pure speculation, but I imagine it's a unique case & not a trend (except for bad luck).
The only other mechanical crash I've found in the 431 Sqn history is the 1992 Moose Jaw crash. All others seem to be pilot related- I'm not sure if that's better or worse. To be honest, I wasn't aware there's been any crashes prior to 1989.
