Snowy Grey Cup arrival - An RCAF Griffon from 430 Helicopter Squadron whips up the snow at Bayfront Park
A CH-146 Griffon from 430 ‘Silver Falcon’ Tactical Helicopter Squadron, based in Valcartier, Quebec, flew the iconic trophy and Canadian Football League Commissioner Randy Ambrosie to Bayfront Park for an official welcome. In a remarkable scene, the Griffon whipped up so much snow as it approached that for a few moments the shutterbugs couldn’t see anything – only hear the sound of the rotors.
