    DND has been far from transparent regarding the crash of the Cyclone from the very beginning, For CDS Vance to claim that the CF didn’t know where the wreckage is and that there may have been witnesses appear to be some sort of concealment effort (I would have expected a lot more honesty
    from an ex-cadet). On May 19th, DND finally admitted–at a press conference held by the Commander of Joint Operations Force Command–that the aircraft crashed very close to the ship, was viewed by a number of crew members. Obviously, the wreckage will be about 3000 ft below the ship’s GPS
    position at the time of the crash.

    Happy belated Birthday to Brit Smith, and thanks for the advice and assistance he provided to me when I was Deputy Director of Administration at the College.
