Operation Northern Reach trains in the NWT


Tilting heads upward, the Royal Canadian Air Force took to the skies over the Western Arctic this summer as part of their rigorous training tour, Operation Northern Reach.

Touching down in communities including Yellowknife, Inuvik, and Norman Wells, the tour offered displays of RCAF capabilities in air mobility, long range patrol, search and rescue, maritime helicopter manoeuvring, parachuting and gracefully choreographed, synchronized aerial displays. The shows included CF18-Hornets, Hercules transport aircraft, Sea King and Cormorant helicopters as well as the beloved RCAF Snowbird Demonstration Team.
