It was a stressful moment at the Atlanta Airshow today when one of the Canadian Forces famed Snowbird planes crashed.

Around 1:30 p.m. (in Atlanta) pilot Capt. Kevin Domon-Grenier had to eject from his plane, Snowbird 5, before the group performed at the Atlanta Air Show, according to a tweet from the Snowbirds. Domon-Grenier was able to get to the ground safely.

In social media posts from the air show, spectators shared photos of black smoke billowing in the distance where the unoccupied plane crashed.

No one was injured in the incident, according to the American Federal Aviation Administration, and the plane went down in an unpopulated area away from the air show.

Because of the incident, the rest of the air show has been cancelled.
