|Prince Rupert skies will feature a CF188 Hornet today
as the CF 18 Demo team delivers a tribute to health care workers
Providing the weather cooperates, Prince Rupert residents will have an opportunity to watch for a special tribute to health care workers today, as the Royal Canadian Airforce CF 18 Demo team makes a pass over the city, with a particular focus on the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital.
The fly bys are part of the RCAF's Operation Inspiration, which have seen similar fly overs take place across Canada. The CF18's are based at Cold Lake Alberta and Bagotville, Quebec“The team has been working hard to be ready for this season and it's amazing to see it all come together. We are excited to take to the skies and demonstrate the awesome ability of the CF-18 while paying tribute to the military members supporting Canadians through domestic operations every day. We are honoured to participate in Operation INSPIRATION with the Snowbirds this summer and look forward to flying in a sky near you. ” -- Captain Daniel Deluce, 2021 CF-18 Demonstration Team Pilot
