No.410 Tactical Fighter Squadron ‘Cougars’ based at 4 Wing Cold Lake is currently operating CF-18AM 188761 in a full-colour paint scheme to commemorate the the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan in operation between 1940 and 1945. The aircraft is the 2016 Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 demo aircraft.
The Royal Canadian Air Force commander is very happy with the decision to purchase the C-17 Globemaster III, which gives the service an invaluable capability to carry heavy loads over long distances.
The CH-124 Sea King will be retired from service in December 2018 after more than 50 years of service with the Royal Canadian Air Force.
Upgrading the CH-146 under a programme dubbed the Griffon Limited Life Extension is available to address obsolescence issues, and if implemented would allow the type to continue operating well into the 2030s.
