RCAF training on a simulated plane crash at Chilliwack airport
Members of Royal Canadian Air Force's (RCAF) 442 Transport and Rescue Squadron engaged in search-and-rescue training exercises in the Chilliwack area this week.
The three days of training is the squadron's annual major search and rescue exercise (SAREX).
On Friday, search-and-rescue technicians (SARTechs) conducted a simulated plane crash at Chilliwack airport where they tended to two injured victims.
Gusting winds made a drop from one of the RCAF's Buffalo aircraft impossible, but two SARTechs long-lined to the site from a Cormorant helicopter.
