Last night, a group of B.C. pilots took to Metro Vancouver skies to pay tribute to the victim of a deadly Snowbird plane crash in Kamloops, and locals captured the aerial display in photos and videos. 

Dubbed "Operation Backup Inspiration," a nod to the Snowbirds event which was called Operation Inspiration, 35 pilots departed from Abbotsford Airport, flying over Metro Vancouver.

The event had strict rules, such as no formation flying, to ensure safety during the memorial.

The B.C. General Aviation Association, which was running the event, said the memorial aimed to "pick up where the Snowbirds left off."

Captain Jenn Casey, a public affairs officer with the Canadian Forces, died in the incident in Kamloops on Sunday.

Have a look at some of the best photos and videos that Metro Vancouverites have shared on social media.
