Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NEWS -

Mem­bers of 12 Ra­dar Squa­dron, the Foxes, took to the road on Oc­to­ber 5 to go to Sa­van­nah, Geor­gia, to par­ti­ci­pate in Exer­cise Bold Quest.

Ori­gi­nal­ly, the trip was plan­ned over five days; ho­we­ver, it en­ded up ta­king nine days, since du­ring this per­iod the Ame­ri­can East Coast was hit by Hurricane Mat­thew. This was the first time that the unit par­ti­ci­pa­ted in the in­ter­na­tio­nal exer­cise. 12 Rdr Sqn took this op­por­tu- ni­ty to lead the de­ploy­ment of per­son­nel and equip­ment, in­clu­ding the TPS- 70 ra­dar. Du­ring the exer­cise, which in­clu­ded par­ti­ci­pants from ma­ny coun­tries, in­clu­ding Nor­way, Ne­ther­lands, Ita­ly and Bri­tain, the Foxes were res­pon­sible for pro­vi­ding control to figh­ters par­ti­ci­pa­ting in air com­bat trai­ning. 12 Ra­dar Squa­dron is a small unit whose mem­bers work as a team to en­sure that the mis­sion is ac­com­pli­shed.
