CP-140 Aurora - Canada's MMA

CP-140 Aurora - Canada's MMA

Externally similar to the widely used and highly successful Lockheed P-3 Orion, the CP-140 Aurora is in fact a different machine entirely. Named after the Greek goddess who restored Orion’s eyesight, Canada took delivery of the first of its 18 strong fleet of CP-140 Auroras in May 1980 (with the last delivered in August 1981) and the aircraft, equipped with a string of upgrades and re-designated CP-140M, is expected to fly until at least 2020. AeroResource joined 405 Long Range Patrol Squadron at RAF Lossiemouth, as part of the Royal Canadian Air Force contingent of Exercise Joint Warrior 14-1 to discover more about the latest incarnation of this formidable platform.
