Vancouver gets the bomber!

A CP-140 Aurora, a Canadian Armed Forces maritime patrol plane out of Comox, will conduct a flyby over Metro Vancouver on Canada Day starting at noon.

The aircraft, from the Royal Canadian Air Force’s 407 Long Range Patrol Squadron, is scheduled to fly at an altitude no lower than 500 feet above the highest point along the flyby route, before resuming a higher altitude for the return trip to 19 Wing Comox.
“To stand on the firing parapet and expose yourself to danger; to stand and fight a thousand miles from home when you're all alone and outnumbered and probably beaten; to spit on your hands and lower the pike; to stand fast over the body of Leonidas the King; to be rear guard at Kunu-Ri; to stand and be still to the Birkenhead Drill; these are not rational acts. They are often merely necessary.”
