6 pleasure boaters lost in fog off Vancouver Island rescued
from The Province
Six people were rescued after their pleasure boat was caught in fog and lost in the ocean near the north tip of Vancouver Island. The Royal Canadian Air Force sent a Buffalo aircraft from 442 Squadron to locate the 24-foot boat, which failed to arrive on time at Port Hardy, its destination. "We heard them talking on FM radio and were able to home in on them," said pilot Capt. Henry Graham. "However, we had zero visibility of the water; the fog was too thick."
