from Government of Canada
Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) CF-18 Hornet fighter jets, under the control of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), recently practiced identification and intercept procedures as United States Air Force (USAF) B-52 Stratofortress bombers returned to the U.S. from an overseas exercise. The B-52s were initially intercepted south of Iceland by RCAF CF-18 Hornets, who were operating under the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) as part of Operation REASSURANCE — Iceland.
