Body of Capt. Jennifer Casey, fallen member of Snowbirds, returns to Halifax on Sunday

The body of Capt. Jennifer Casey is set to return home to Halifax on Sunday.

The 35-year-old former journalist and public affairs officer for the Canadian Armed Forces Snowbirds — the official aerobatic team of the Royal Canadian Air Force — died last week as the jet she was flying in crashed in Kamloops, B.C.

She is being remembered as a storyteller who made an impact on everyone she crossed paths with.

Casey was an integral part of creating the Snowbirds’ Operation Inspiration tour for a country otherwise gripped by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The route will be long enough to ensure that families are able to distance themselves 2 meters apart from one another, following Nova Scotia’s physical distancing guidelines.

Casey’s family has asked attendees to wear clothing in memory of her favourite things including  Montreal Canadiens jerseys, Tragically Hip apparel and Star Wars clothing.

The Canadian Armed Forces said the plane carrying Casey’s remains could land as early as 5 p.m. AT with the procession beginning afterwards.
