Members from 19 Wing Comox are some of the many participating in RIMPAC.
The world’s biggest maritime exercise is in its 25th year and 26 countries are involved.
Rear-Admiral Scott Bishop says it’s an extremely important exercise. He says it creates a great venue for countries around the Pacific to work and train together in a variety of scenarios.
Bishop says over 65 members of 19 Wing Comox are on hand.
He notes that 19 Wing Comox Commander Tom Dunne has played a major part in the training.
RIMPAC wraps up on Thursday. The next exercise will be in 2018.
