WINDSOR, Ont. - A plane that the military grounded after a fiery crash in Alberta last month will fly in a Windsor, Ont., air show this weekend.
The CF-18 Hornet will be a part of the Windsor International Air Show.
Keith Baxter, the director of operations for the air show, says the air force has decided to keep its commitment with Windsor.
Baxter says they were able to find another pilot and CF-18 to perform a demonstration.
Capt. Brian Bews is recovering after he suffered back injuries in July, when he was ejected from his jet just seconds before it hit the ground and exploded.
Baxter says the Windsor airport will be a busy place starting Wednesday as the aircraft start arriving for the show.
