Ex Ready Angle in Macademia
From April 26th to May 5th, 2 Wing participated in a fictitious exercise to practice rescuing Canadians stuck in an unstable country. They planned the air evacuation of Canadians wishing to leave the ' Macademia', a fictitious country consisting of an archipelago of islands that has become socially and politically unstable after an earth quake and tsunami in February 2017.
The plot was that because of the instability, commercial airlines were no longer insured to land in the Macademia, so Canadians who wanted to leave were stuck. This is when the Canadian government intervened and sent a mission, led by Global Affairs Canada, to coordinate the evacuation of its citizens with the support of the Canadian Armed Forces, the Canada Border Services Agency, Public Safety Canada , and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. Although the evacuation flights were fictitious and did not actually take place, all six members of 2 Wing deployed to British Columbia for the exercise completed all stages of planning and coordinated aerodromes and roads available in the Macademia and in the neighboring country which was to welcome the evacuees, thus validating the aerial portion of training for this type of mission.
