Canadian Forces Hercules Makes Quick Stop in Lethbridge
LETHBRIDGE: A Canadian Forces Hercules made a quick stop in our city Tuesday morning.
The aircraft circled the airport several times, dropped two parachuters, landed to pick them up, and then took off again.
Airport Manager Scott Butchart noted that the aircraft did contact them to say what they would be doing, however they didn't say why. He stated that it was likely a training run for the search and rescue team.
