Royal Canadian Air Force Lockheed CP-140 Aurora

With a large shoreline to protect and patrol, Canada operates a fleet of 18 CP-140s, a derivative of Lockheed's P-3 Orion four-engined maritime patrol aircraft. Canada's fleet have been heavily adapted to perform a range of missions beyond the traditional missions over water and were recently in operation over Iraq carrying out overland intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. The Canadians also use the aircraft for search and rescue missions. Canada's CP-140s are operated by 14 Wing and 19 Wing. The aircraft attending the Air Tattoo is from 14 Wing based at Greenwood, Nova Scotia.
