CF-18 jets head to Goose base

Canadian fighter jets will be using Canadian Forces Base Goose Bay as they take part in Operation Nanook, an annual exercise that gives the armed forces practice in the Arctic.

The skies over Labrador will be a little more active this week, as a military exercise kicks into gear.

Canadian fighter jets will be using the Goose Bay air base as they take part in Operation Nanook, an annual exercise that gives the armed forces practice in the Arctic.

The CF-18 jets will leave from Goose Bay every day, flying in the high Arctic.

Officials on the base hope they stick around for a few days of training.

So far this summer, the base has been more quiet than normal.

The German training exercises that have kept the base busy in past years have been put on hold because a new agreement remains unsigned.
