If you are in Sechelt on Canada Day, keep your eyes on the skies.

The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) will be conducting a series of flybys across the province as part of Canada day celebrations on July 1st, and Sechelt is one of the fortunate locations that will receive a visit from one of the military’s aircraft.

A flyby of a CC-115 Buffalo, a search and rescue aircraft will fly over Sechelt, subject to weather and operational requirements. It’s not stated specifically when the flyby will occur but the aircraft will fly at an altitude no lower than 500 feet above the highest obstacle in it’s path which should allow for clear viewing by the public.

Other cities included in the series of flybys are Vancouver, Nanaimo, Prince George, Sidney, Gold River and Courtnay. Aircrafts particpating in addition to the CC-115 Buffalo include the CP-140 Aurora, CH-124 Sea King and CH-149 Cormorant.
