CH-149 Cormorant is performing a rescue demo for the air show crowd. These 3 engine machines are very powerful. They create significant rotor wash for the SAR Techs when they are lowered or picked up from crashes or rescue scenes. Great flying aircraft. The sound of life if you are stranded, lost, injured or in serious trouble. 442 Sqn covers a massive area from Alaska in the far North to Washington State to the South of British Columbia. 442 Sqn fly the CC-115 Buffalo search and rescue aircraft as well as these CH-149 Cormorant aircraft. They are the busiest SAR squadron in Canada.
