Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NEWS -

In recent weeks, CFB Ba­got­ville has writ­ten in its own his­to­ry books. The G7 Sum­mit held in Char­le­voix cer­tain­ly ge­ne­ra­ted a lot of ac­ti­vi­ty on the Mi­li­ta­ry Base and its sur­roun­dings, at the be­gin­ning of June.

While the Ca­na­dian Ar­med Forces ( CAF) contri­bu­tion was fo­cu­sed on se­cu­ri­ty, a wide va­rie­ty of mi­li­ta­ry ca­pa­bi­li­ties, in­clu­ding ma­ny from the Royal Ca­na­dian Air Force, were de- ployed be­fore and du­ring the Sum­mit to en­sure suc­cess of the en­tire event.

More than 2,000 mi­li­ta­ry per­son­nel have been di­rect­ly in­vol­ved in the or­ga­ni­za­tion. And it was the CAF air­craft that trans­por­ted the di­gni­ta­ries at­ten­ding the Sum­mit bet­ween Ba­got­ville and La Mal­baie. 2 Wing meanw­hile de­ployed to St- Iré­né air­port be­fore and du­ring the Sum­mit ( see other text on page 5). As usual, the CF- 18s have been on alert to en­sure the so­ve­rei­gn­ty and se­cu­ri­ty of the airs­pace.

The in­ten­si­ty of their pre­sence has been en­han­ced for the du­ra­tion of the Sum­mit to en­sure the hi­ghest se­cu­ri­ty to the fo­rei­gn di­gni­ta­ries.

There have been si­gni­fi­cant ef­forts and eve­ryone agrees that they have ac­com­pli­shed their mis­sion with flying co­lors.
