[DEPARTED] 24MAR2023 | US President Flight to Canada

US President Joe Biden is currently on a trip to Ottawa for a state visit. Even though this event is a day late to his actual trip, it still doesn’t stop us avgeeks from doing the same flight. This event is also short notice, so I hope we can still get enough people to join.

great !

That’s the one I wanted you to sign me up for Lolol. But he can have it

so do you understand your assignment in the event? You will spawn in at CYTR and fly to Ottawa, and basically orbit over the city of Ottawa until the President lands safely.

oh, I thought you wanted to be apart of the escort lol

Tankers don’t fly with an escort. They fly in Refueling Blocks. Since they need to have total airspace command. Lololol

Instead they would hook up with different tankers along the way

normally yes, but since this is very last minute, we don’t have the resources to organise that lol

Lolol. I get it.

so do you still want the tanker or would you prefer a different plane?

Do me a CF-18 over Ottawa

sounds good, sorry for the confusion

All good man
