CP-140 Aurora

A CP-140 Aurora takes off for a mission during Exercise MAPLE FLAG XL (MF 40). Exercise MAPLE FLAG runs from May 22 to June 15 and is divided into two two-week periods. During each period, forces from Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Belgium, the United States, the United Kingdom and NATO engage in a simulated, 10-day coalition air campaign.
