Sar Excercise off Mcnabs

The Chronicle Herald Reports:

Search and rescue exercise to be held in Halifax Harbour
If you see unusual activity in Halifax Harbour today, don’t panic.
A large-scale search and rescue training exercise is expected to take place near McNabs Island throughout much of the day, beginning at 9 a.m.
A Canadian Coast Guard spokesman said the exercise will include coast guard ships and personnel, police, DND Cormorant and/or Hercules aircraft and local ground search and rescue volunteers.
Sea Cadets will play the casualties in the water and on the island, in a scenario in which a tour boat is missing and believed capsized.

I May Get Pictures.. 
It appeared to be quite the exercise, occurring within thick Fog. CCGS Sambro was on scene at Majors Beach, and a Hercules and Cormorant were also in attendance, Though thanks to timing, and the thick fog, only the Herc could be photographed.

  1. Well that answers that question. I'm in Eastern Passage and saw the Hercules circling and circling.
