120807-G-ZZ999-001-Air-Station-Detroit.jpg (89592 bytes)
The Canadian ship is in the area as part of the War of 1812 Bicentennial Commemoration and, since they are rarely able to conduct helicopter operations and Great Lakes Coast Guard aircrews do not often have access to a ship with a flightdeck, it was the perfect opportunity to train both the ship and helicopter crews.
