8 Wing CFB Trenton’s 424 (Transport and Rescue) Squadron will be conducting search and rescue (SAR) flare training over Lake Ontario, south of Brighton and west of Prince Edward County, between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.  Tuesday, Oct 25 to Thursday, Oct 27. In the area during this time, a C-130 Hercules will be launching yellow-white flares from an altitude no higher than 5500 ft. above sea level.

The training is in support of nighttime SAR missions and allows 424 Squadron to practice night flying and spotting procedures. This training is not expected to pose a disturbance to the community.
