Canada in Iraq: RCAF CF-18s Pre-Halloween Strike

With Justin Trudeau, and his cabinet being sworn in on Wednesday, the looming stand-down of Air Task Force Iraq is assumed to be getting closer. 

That has not stopped RCAF CF-18's from continuing their fight against ISIS. 

On 30 October 2015, while taking part in coalition operations in support of Iraqi security forces, two CF-18 Hornets successfully struck an ISIS fighting position northeast of Tal Afar using precision guided munitions.
