There was anything but an ordinary day last week at the Courtenay Airpark when a 19 Wing Cormorant touched down mid-morning at the local aerodrome in search of an Emergency Locator Transmitter.

The Search and Rescue team were sent on a mission by the Joint Rescue Coordination Center in Victoria to track the signal that was being detected in the Sechelt area along the Straits of Georgia.

The signal eventually homed to a privately owned Cessena parked at the airpark…they coulldn’t track down the pilot but were were able to turn off the ELT and left a friendly note for the pilot.
