The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) will be marking National Peacekeepers day on Sunday with a flyby over Victoria.

A CC-115 Buffalo aircraft from 442 Transport and Rescue Squadron will conduct a flyby over the city around 7:15 p.m.

The event is subject to weather and operational requirements and the RCAF says that all flybys are carefully planned and controlled to ensure public safety.

“Members of the public are reminded to maintain proper physical distancing practices in line with their provincial health guidelines while observing the flyby,” the RCAF said in a release.

The Buffalo will fly overhead at an altitude no lower than 500 feet above the highest point of the flyby route, before resuming a higher altitude for the return trip to 19 Wing Comox.
