Expect night lights from Shilo training

Search-and-rescue training tonight over the Shilo range could spark a few strange lights in the sky.

The night exercises are being conducted tonight by 435 Transport and Rescue Squadron, which is based at 17 Wing Winnipeg. In conjunction with their Ontario counterparts at 424 Squadron based at Trenton, they provide primary search and rescue response for the Trenton Search and Rescue Region, the largest in Canada. It extends from Quebec City to the British Columbia/Alberta border, and from the Canada/United States border to the North Pole.

Tonight's exercise will include the dropping of illumination flares and practicing all aspects of night search and rescue operations at the range.

The range itself is located southeast of the CFB Shilo base, west of Highway 238.
