4 F18s 1 A310 & 1 C130H of the Canadian Armed Forces Visit Prestwick Airport | August 2017

  • Published on Mar 22, 2018
  • Hi all. During the 18th & 20th August 2017, Prestwick had a big Canadian Presence visiting over the weekend. This was because it was the NATO Baltic Air Policing switch over and it was Canada’s turn to do this. They arrived on the evening of the 18th at dusk, the light just held out and no more. They were in the forum of 4 F18s, 1 A310 Tanker plus a C130H, a really good line up. The C130H departed the day later, whilst the rest departed mid morning on the 20th. One of the best movements of 2017 at Prestwick Airport. It was great to see 4 F18s on the ground at once as well. On their return to Canada, they routed by Lajes in Portugal. I hope you all enjoy.

    Great video of the RCAF - but as always everyone drools over the F-18's and the A310. The star of the show was the A330 MRTT, that Canadian forces paint was awesome. thanks for sharing this video.

    Fantastic video (as always) in sight and sound. To see the 6 Canadian aircraft and hear the roar of the F-18's taking off is like music to the ears. Thank you again!!
