Military choppers conduct exercises over Montreal

MONTREAL – Don’t be alarmed if you see military helicopters flying over downtown Montreal.

Two Canadian Forces CH-146 Griffon helicopters from the 427th Special Operations Aviation Squadron have begun three evenings of training manoeuvres, from Wednesday to Friday night.

Flying from the St. Hubert airport, the choppers will approach Complexe Desjardins (at Ste. Catherine and Bleury Sts.) from various directions and hover over the building for brief periods between 6 p.m. and midnight to practise night approaches to high-rise buildings.

    want to make sure there are no accidents when the time comes.
