Canadian CH-148 loses contact in Mediterranean

30th April 2020 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Canadian Armed Forces Operations reported on 29 April that a CH-148 Cyclone (H-92) aircraft lost contact with the HMCS Fredericton whilst partaking in exercises in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Greece.

Both the HMCS Fredericton and the CH-148 were operating in the region as part of the Standing NATO Maritime Group 2 (SNMG2), which is contributing to Operation Reassurance.

A SAR mission is ongoing and the Canadian Armed Forces has said that it has contacted all primary family members of those involved with the accident.

Canada currently operates 14 CH-148 Cyclone aircraft whilst a further 14 are expected to be delivered. The estimated cost of the acquisition project management, infrastructure and contingency costs is reported by Shephard Defence Insight to be $3.2 billion whilst major in-service support services until 2038 will cost Canada $5.8 billion.
