Just what we need is another bird down. Based on your current location I take it this was one posted to the Libyan mission? Do we still have the "spares" available to the Northwest?

Three shots that are a bit different to what's been posted in this thread thus far.

Major Miguel Bernard joined an elite club on Aug. 15, 2011 when he flew his
3000th hour in the CF-18 Hornet fighter aircraft while transiting from
Bagotville, Que. to Trapani, Italy to support Operation Mobile.

"It's a significant milestone because not many people have it," he said from
Trapani. "It just takes time."

Maj Bernard is one of only two active CF-18 pilots with 3000 hours in the
aircraft.

The native of Gatineau, Que., joined the Canadian Forces after finishing
Coll銶e d'enseignement g幯廨al et professionnel (CEGEP) in 1988. It was a
long-time dream of his to fly fighters, ever since he began flying with a
friend's father who was a civilian pilot.

Since completing his training on the Hornet, Maj Bernard has been living
that childhood dream to the fullest. In addition to postings at 4 Wing Cold
Lake, Alta. and 3 Wing Bagotville, Que., he has served on exchange postings
in Australia and Germany and two tours in Kandahar. He also flew as a Hornet
demonstration pilot, participating in many air shows.

Despite all of these accomplishments while building an impressive amount of
flying time, Maj Bernard says the highlight of his career has been deploying
for Operation Mobile.

"It took 3000 hours to get to my first operation!" he said with a laugh. "A
lot of pilots go their entire career without seeing an operation so this
completes the circle. This has to top everything because we’re actually
putting to work what we've trained to do."

He also recognizes the importance of Canada's contribution to Operation
Unified Protector.

"Something like this doesn't happen often, but when it does, you really need
to be there," he explains. "The people of Libya: it's their country. We're
here to help and save as many lives as we can," said Maj Bernard.

speaking of female pilots, has anyone else seen Les Chevaliers du Ciel?
It's an awesome movie, lots of amazing flight scenes. I haven't seen a subtitled version yet, I watched it in French. But still worth downloading

I've seen it. The flight scenes were awesome... the plot no so much. But who watches it for the plot anyways?

And the female pilots... :
