19 Wing Comox crews back from Operation Driftnet
It was one heck of a road trip for CFB Comox Aurora Long Range Patrol Aircraft crews! Captain Trevor Reid at the base says they participated in Operation Driftnet in the North Pacific, patrolling for illegal fishing activity. As for the results of the two week campaign?
Captain Reid says it has actually been quite a while since they apprehended illegal driftnet fishers, adding the yearly operation has become quite the deterrent.
The 2014 edition of Operation Driftnet was based in Japan.
