Naval Air: Canada Come In From The Sea


2, 2007:
Noting the success American P-3 and British Nimrod maritime patrol
aircraft have had at doing reconnaissance over land, Canada is spending $128 million to
upgrade sixteen CP-140 aircraft (which are modified versions of the U.S. P-3)
so they can track things on land. Thus modified, the CP-140s can also serve on
peacekeeping missions, where large, unruly areas have to be patrolled.
