Unbelievable but true!!

85652 F/O Ralph Awrey

During the nice Spring like weather in Toronto last Monday, Ex Cadet, 5045 Ralph Awrey decided to change the flag flying from his flag pole in the front of his residence.

For no apparent reason Ralph hoisted – the RCAF Ensign. Just 5 minutes later while he was just sitting on his porch admiring the flag , an RCAF C130 Hercules (the last aircraft in which RCAF, 85652 F/O Ralph Awrey navigated in 1964!) flew over his house!

How did they know?
