The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) will conduct flypasts for several Remembrance Day commemorations across Canada on November 11, including multiple locations on Vancouver Island.
These will be carried out by aircraft from Royal Canadian Air Force Wings throughout Canada at various times throughout the day.
The RCAF says that during the flypasts, the aircraft will fly at minimum altitudes above the highest obstacle in their path.
On Vancouver Island, flyovers will be conducted over Campbell River, Comox, Courtenay, Cumberland, Nanaimo and Sidney.
The CH-149 Cormorant aircraft will be used for the flyovers in Campbell River, Comox, Courtenay, Cumberland and Nanaimo and the CH-148 Cyclone will be used for the flyover in Sidney.
“Flypasts conducted by Royal Canadian Air Force aircraft are carefully planned and closely controlled for public safety, and are dependent upon weather and flying conditions,” reads a statement from the Royal Canadian Air Force.
