Remembrance Day Flypast - x7 Griffons
« on: November 02, 2011, 21:04:14 »
There is a planned flypast of seven Griffons over the National War Memorial in Ottawa on Remembrance Day.  This is to celebrate their return from Afghanistan.  I'll be there.

Can you get 7 in the air at the same time?  (Obviously NOT from the same sqn  ;D )

Hardy, har, har....  I did have a good laugh and yes, Tac Hel can get 7 in the air at the same time.

I figure that you're a seized wing fellow? ;)

I was in Borden when we were able to get 8 in the air at the same time while on Ex for HR trg!  Pretty sure you were there too!

Aaah, I get it now.  I never knew that you were ex-pilote.  I never checked your info until now.  I think that I have it figured out who you are, but I thought that you were posted to Ottawa??

I don't think that I was in Borden working for 400 or 427 Sqn at that time for HR trg, assuming that you were at 427 Sqn that time?  I think that I may have already been posted by that time to Boredom, aka Borden, but not in the Tac Hel world at that time.

You're flying in from Borden or Montreal?

I'm no longer at a Tac Hel unit.  I was informed of this from a former Tac Hel associate.  I would assume that they would be a mix of different units considering that there are supposed to be seven.  That's my best guess.

I think that I have it, but Strike hasn't responded yet or PM'ed me, so maybe I'll go get some McDonald's french fries with lots of salt, sick back, and enjoy them.  :)

Figured that I had it and that you'd know that I had it with my comment.
