A media relations officer for the Royal Canadian Air Force told SaultOnline the aircraft and crew were from the Search and Rescue wing at CFB Trenton. The were stopping in Sault Ste. Marie to refuel while conducting a training mission.

The mission is part of being prepared to go “anywhere, anytime” when it comes to a real mission.
