The final day of the Atlanta Air Show is canceled after a pilot ejected from a plane Sunday afternoon. 

The airshow began Saturday and was scheduled to continue Sunday afternoon at Tara Field near the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton. 

Capt. Kevin Domon-Grenier, a pilot with the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, ejected from his aircraft shortly before the squadron was due to perform, the Snowbirds announced on Twitter Sunday. Domon-Grenier’s CT-114 Tutor crashed prior to the show’s opening,  Airshow officials said.
