Struck ground during turn, near Cold Lake while attempting to verify a pod had jettisoned safely from their aircraft while flying at 500’ AGL. Neither pilot communicated effectively with the other to confirm who was responsible for flying and avoiding the ground and who was responsible for verifying the pod’s safe jettison. Instead, both Pilots focussed their attention on the pod and consequently flew into the ground.
