Canadian N.O.R.A.D. Regional Headquarters says a loud aircraft that passed over Trail Monday night was not one of theirs. The KBS News room was flooded with calls Monday night when what sounded like a jet fighter blew through Trail airspace at around 11:10 p.m. Public Affairs Officer Lieutenant Steve Neta says after checking with Operations Personnel at 19 Wing Comox, and the National Operations Centre in Winnipeg, they know it was not a Canadian Forces Aircraft that caused the loud disturbance. But Neta says he doesn’t know who’s it was. Officials at Fair Child Air Force Base in the U.S. says the air craft was not theirs either. When contacted this morning, NAV Canada Officials in Ottawa refused to give out any information related to flight plans in our area.
