Exercise Bel Air, Camp Valcartier, Feb 20-28 1961Capt "Ace" Card A/OC 1 AOP FLT (left) with Capt Dale Saxon (right).
Note: Memory!!... Ex. ended for us Feb 25th, but owing to very heavy snow and also freezing rain, stuck in Que. I was able to get back in a 3.5 hour flight direct Quebec/Petawawa on Feb 28th.
The photo, as I remember was a news shot before the exercise. We supported 2nd and 3rd battalions R22e R with route recce’s, photo recce’s, and delivery by air drop.
No specifics regarding subject matter! CARDE from Camp Valcartier was also supported with air photo flights.
