A CT-156 Harvard II. It was a Harvard II aircraft that crashed Friday afternoon.
Led by 15 Wing Commander Col. Paul Goddard, the flight is intended to show 15 Wing's primary aircraft assets and familiarize Bombardier Military Aviation Training civilian members with flying.
The formation will include 16 CT-156 Harvard II aircraft and four CT-155 Hawk aircraft. The flight will begin at 8:30 a.m.
The 16-ship formation is the largest one in the Canadian Armed Forces, including formations used by Snowbirds and the CF-18s. It marks the second time in the NATO Flying Training Centre's history that this large of a formation flight has taken place.
Check back tomorrow for the Times-Herald's coverage of the formation flight.
