Sadly the crew member who passed today was Jenn Cassey, Jenn was the also the public affairs officer for the 2018 CF-18 demo team. The very friendly person who kept a lot of people on here up to date on the Mach Loop pass. She was one of the best PAOs I've ever worked with. RIP Jenn.

Terrible news; and at a time they were trying to boost morale. Andy Williams' song Snowbird has been ringing in my ears all day perhaps they should release it? or better still the original Anne Murray version
