CF-188 Hornets to fly over Cold Lake this afternoon

Multiple CF-188 Hornet aircraft from 401 Tactical Fighter Squadron will conduct a flyby in celebration of the closing of 401 Squadron on Tuesday, July 11. 

At approximately 1:30 p.m. the aircraft will fly from east to west over the Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake at an altitude no lower than 500 feet above the highest obstacle over ground level.

The public can expect some higher than normal air activity in the vicinity of the base.

“Royal Canadian Air Force flybys are carefully planned and closely controlled to ensure public safety at all times, the PSA, released on Tuesday afternoon says.

“The Royal Canadian Air Force is proud to share in special events that allow us to demonstrate the capabilities of our personnel and aircraft to Canadians.”

Aircraft participation is subject to weather and operational requirements.
