New colors for two CF- 18
In recent weeks, two CF- 18s from Bagotville received brand new paint jobs, thanks to the work of 3 Air Maintenance Squadron.
The first paint job was done in September, with the jet painted in 425 Squadron colors to mark the upcoming 75th anniversary of the Alouettes in 2017. The second jet was painted to mark the reactivation of 433 Squadron. On the tail of the aircraft is the image of a porcupine, the emblem of the squadron, and their motto "Qui s’y frotte, s’y pique". The completion of these two projects was a challenge but everything happened very quickly. The approvals were obtained in less than a week, following which staff were deployed to CFB Trenton. The shop supervisor said he was particularly proud of his team, which consisted of Cpl Guy Lanteigne, Cpl Jerome St- Jacques, Cpl Jonathan Vézina and Avr Samuel Paradis.
