Six CF-18 Hornets left CFB Cold Lake, Alberta today to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in the Middle East. The Hornets head to Kuwait where the Canadians have set up a home base for launching their airstrikes. The RCAF is also tasking two CP-140 Aurora surveillance aircraft from CFB Greenwood, Nova Scotia and a CC-150 Polaris (Airbus) air-to-air fuel tanker from CFB Trenton, Ontario to join the U.S.-led coalition.
