The Canadian Armed Forces operated a fleet of five Boeing 707 transports (code named CC-137s) from 1970 through 1997. These reliable aircraft provided the Canadian military with a truly global deployment capability, with air-to-air refueling, humanitarian, and troop and cargo transport capabilities.
The footage on this DVD was filmed using state-of-the-art TV broadcast betacams. This two-part visual documentary takes the viewer for an up-close visit exploring all aspects of the operation. On this DVD, a period CAF promo film explains the workings of a trans-Atlantic CF-5 refueling flight across the pond. We then fly from Kai Tak to YVR on a Vietnamese refugee flight in 1979.
Then we join troops boarding their CC-137 at Quebec City for their flight to Andoya for military exercises, along with a tanker CC-137 escorting CF-5s across the pond. There’s ample footage of all the action at Andoya airfield with lots of noisy & smoky 707 footage.
The CC-137s were based at CFB Trenton where we then soak up some winter cold weather operations. Finally, we join a sked-run military passenger flight between Ottawa and CFB Trenton.
