We say good bye to the Sea King

The Royal Canadian Air Force is finally retiring the last of its CH-124 Sea Kings. Heath Moffatt captured these stunning photos over Vancouver Island as part of the lead-up to retirement events in Patricia Bay, B.C. this weekend.

The CH-124s have been in service with the Canadians since 1963. The CH-124 will be replaced by the CH-148.
