A military helicopter spotted flying over Huntsville’s Lake Vernon caused a bit of a stir among local residents over the weekend.
Several residents took to local Facebook groups to discuss the sighting of a Boeing CH-47 Chinook helicopter around 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.
According to Captain David Lavallee, Public Affairs Officer for the 1 Canadian Air Division in Winnipeg, the helicopter was making its way back to CFB Petawawa after a stint in the Greater Toronto Area.
The Chinook was in the area for a showcase at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton, as well as fly-bys during Canadian Armed Forces appreciation games by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Toronto FC.
Lavallee says there are currently no drills or training exercises planned in or around Muskoka.
