Fighter Jets Over Kelowna

Postby tsayta » Sep 12th, 2012, 5:03 pm

just saw 3 fighter jets flying in formation from west to east over kelowna. Moving fast and low altitude. Not sure what kind. F18 maybe? Got to wonder what the heck they are doing out here. Pretty cool though!

I'm just waiting for another poster to come here and say that the City of Kelowna should make a bylaw forbidding low-flying military aircraft because it's noisy.
Although he had infinite patience, he was annoyed,

Mock disaster to take over airport
by Wayne Moore - Story: 80386
Sep 12, 2012 / 2:41 pm

If you notice unusual activity around Kelowna International Airport during your morning commute Thursday - don't be alarmed.

More than 40 agencies will be taking part in the largest mock disaster of its type to ever take place in the Central Okanagan.

The full-scale exercise, 'Operation Unity,' will take place on the east side of the airport property bordering on Old Vernon Road from 7 a.m. until noon.

It will consist of a mock aircraft accident.

The scenario is designed to engage a broad segment of the community and bring into play almost all aspects of the Central Okanagan Regional Emergency Program.

In addition, both UBC-Okanagan and Interior Health at Kelowna General Hospital will conduct their own full-scale exercises in conjunction with Operation Unity.

Normal operations will still occur at all exercise locations.

The public should not be affected.

This is the first mock disaster involving the airport since 2006.

No relation to tomorrow's mock events

according to the Kelowna airport twitter feed:
YLW Kelowna Airport ‏@ylwkelowna
its just coincidence the fighters are here for training nothing to do with tomorrow's exercise
