NORAD fighter jets escort commercial aircraft
from North American Aerospace Defense Command
The North American Aerospace Defense Command scrambled two CF-18 fighter jets based out of Bagotville, QC recently as a precautionary measure to escort Sunwing Flight 656 as it returned to Toronto. Once the aircraft was safely on the ground, the Canadian fighters returned to their home base. NORAD is the bi-national Canadian and American command that provides maritime warning, aerospace warning and aerospace control for Canada and the United States.
