RCAF Flyby Over Toronto in Honour of 75th V-E Day Celebrations

‪Two Royal Canadian Air Force CH-147F Chinook helicopters from 450 Tactical Helicopter Squadron will conduct a flyby over downtown in Toronto at approximately 10:40 a.m., Friday, May 8th, 2020 as part of a ceremony to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe (V-E Day).

‪The aircraft will conduct two passes and fly over the event at an altitude no lower than 1000 feet above the highest point of their route, before resuming a higher altitude for their return trips to Canadian Forces Base Petawawa.

‪Royal Canadian Air Force flybys, requested by organizers of special events, are carefully planned and closely controlled to ensure public safety at all times. Aircraft participation is subject to weather and operational requirements.
