The Winter Olympics start in two weeks, and there is much activity at the Vancouver airport. The sound of high-powered turbine aircraft engines fills the air.
My office is right under the approach path to runway 26L, so I see CF-18 Hornet fighter jets
and CH-146 Griffin helicopters
flying around several times a day.
Rumor has it that two Halifax-class frigates
will be anchored offshore to provide extra air defense.
