British Columbians may have the chance to spot NORAD aircrafts overhead Wednesday (Feb. 15).
The North American Aerospace Defense Command says it’s conducting a live-fly air defence exercise off the coasts of B.C. and Washington State throughout the day.
It’ll be using a variety of American and Canadian aircrafts, including fighter aircrafts, operating at a high altitude.
Despite the timing the exercise, NORAD says it is in no way connected to the four unidentified objects that have been shot down over North America in the last couple of weeks.
NORAD says air defence exercises are routine for it, including practising how to respond to airspace restriction violations, unknown aircrafts and hijackings.
Wednesday’s exercise is only scheduled to last the day.
