Incident at Camp Gagetown CYR 724 (Communication navigation surveillance/air traffic system)


2001-06-19: Dark 51,52,53, 3 B1 aircraft from FDYS (Dyess AFB) were entering CYR724 and TRACY area on an ALTRV. Aircraft were operating within this area under the control of the military. The aircraft were observed exiting the area north at various altitudes. Dark 52 had no transponder. GENG, C414 had departed YFC westbound. Dark 51 passed south of GENG by 1 mile with altitude between 800-1000 below. The pilot of GENG reported sighting the B1. Numerous attempts were made to contact the controlling agency and restrict the B1's to the ALTRV area. Several other excusions were made to the north and east of CYR724. Due to uncertainty of these aircraft, no departures were halted from YFC, delaying one aircraft a few minutes. The aircraft completed the excercise and contacted Moncton ACC for clearance enroute for the balance of the mission. No controller involvement. Nil TSB
