CF Mission/Operation Notes:

On 12 January 1999, a 426 Squadron CC-130 Hercules left 8 Wing Trenton on a long-range training flight bound for Haiti with humanitarian supplies onboard. This was a routine practice on 426 Squadron, which offered aid agencies the opportunity of delivering humanitarian aid on such flights when there was a full load to deliver.
