NORAD Tracking Santa
Prince George, B.C- Once again NORAD is keeping rack of Santa’s progress around the world. Tracking started 3 this morning and can be followed on the video above.
This is the 61st year that NORAD had kept tabs on Santa’s progress and will see Canadian escorts from 3 Wing Bagotville, Quebec, and from 4 Wing Cold Lake Alberta when he enters Canadian Air Space.
“The responsibility of keeping watchful eyes over North American airspace 24/7 rests with our men and women of the Canadian NORAD Region,” said Major-General Christian Drouin, the commander of 1 Canadian Air Division/Canadian NORAD Region. “It is a duty and honour we hold dearly: to ensure Santa’s safe passage through North America so he can deliver joy and goodwill this holiday season.”
This year CANR dedicates this mission to the memory of Captain Thomas McQueen, who escorted Santa in 2014.
