CF-18s Roar Over Nova Scotia In Memorial To Capt. Derek
The four CF-18s flew low as they headed for a cemetery in
northern Nova Scotia Tuesday. Suddenly, one of them pulled up in a
vertical climb -- the missing man formation. It was a tribute to
Canadian Forces Captain Derek Nichols, killed June 28th in a US
Marines F/A-18 crash at Beaufort Naval Air Station (SC).
From the US Air Force...

April 17, 2002, bombing incident which resulted in the deaths of
four Canadian soldiers and the serious injury of eight others.
