🚨🇺🇸🇨🇦 Il NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) comunica di aver avvistato un altro potenziale pallone spia. Questa volta nei cieli del #Canada.

#NORAD: "Aerei militari stanno operando dall'#Alaska e dal #Canada a sostegno delle attività del NORAD. Il NORAD conferma di aver identificato con certezza un oggetto aereo ad alta quota sopra il Canada settentrionale".
#Trudeau: Un jet da combattimento ha abbattuto un oggetto non identificato che ha violato lo spazio aereo del #Canada.

Let me understand this really well, 🇺🇸🇨🇦 #NORAD QRA fighters didn't shoot down the 🇨🇳 Chinese spy balloon in American, then Canadian, then American airspace? 😂


They flew right through the #ADIZ that the media get their bloomers in a bunch about when the Russians fly antiques through, and VIOLATED American and Canadian airspace, which the Russians never do, and the Chinese continue to do; did I get that right? What a bunch of bullsh!t.
I suspect the #USAF are flying their own spy drones over China on the regular, without the public's knowledge, in full view of the Chinese military, and they're terrified the Chinese will start shooting them out of the sky if they shoot down the balloon.

Recently the MIT Tech Review released their global cyber defense ratings, which ranked Canada as the 5th top country contributing to cyber defense.

I am here to tell you and explain how this is completely false.

#cdnpoli #cdnnatsec #cyberdefense #CDNdigital Image
Canada deserves a good score because of its private sector, but the federal government's policies and direction of cyber defense is ad hoc, shallow, and broadly lacks coherent direction or recognition of cyberspace as a threat environment.
There is a lot to discuss, but I'll focus on cloud networking.

On paper there is a lot of good that Canada has planned, it is working towards a classified defense cloud network in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), but last I heard the estimate for delivery/completion is 2030.

Feb 23 2022: "#WHO facilitates 194 member states to introduce digital #vaccination certificates... WHO will make it easier for its member states to introduce digital vaccination certificates in the future... It is intended to serve as a standard procedure..." #DigitalID
"#WHO is therefore supporting member states in building national & regional trust networks & verification technology. The WHO's gateway service also serves as a bridge between regional systems. It can also be used as part of future #vaccination campaigns..."

"Digitization keeps the world running. Digital #vaccination certificates like the EU's are key to this...The gateway will interact w/ other parts of the system already developed by WHO...This will also give hints for regional & national setups to be followed by the implementers."

🇨🇦 As part of today's #NORAD exercise, the part of the tanker will be played by #RCAF CC-150T 15004, now taxiing at #CYOW, showing the game is afoot.

iirc they used a Learjet as the unknown potentially hostile aircraft to intercept last time...

It was a Top Aces jet last year(?), so I'd guess this exercise is using the same contract vehicle.

Do I already have a list of Top Aces planes tho...
Well well, we have a gaggle of Top Aces fighters taking off from Bagotville. CHETA callsigns.

It would be swell if @JohnMooneyST
influenced his editors to correct the headline at least. No #RuAF 🇷🇺 aircraft were in Irish airspace at any time. That's misinformation at best, #disinformation at worst; they were in international airspace the whole time…
Journalists are regularly fed bad info by their trusted sources who want to mislead them and spin the story, so I can hardly blame @JohnMooneyST who did his due diligence. The Flight Information Region #FIR is the correct term, the international airspace controlled by Irish ATC.
Sovereign Irish airspace extends 12 Nautical Miles out to sea, the flight information region #FIR extends hundreds of miles out to sea. #NORAD is much more diligent in explaining that difference, as they do in the linked PDF below, from a few years back.…

🇨🇦✈️ I know the Canadian Armed Forces don't ever take a day off, and this weekend is no exception.
🇨🇦✈️ At least two #RCAF CH-148 Cyclones have been active over Halifax and Shearwater in the past day.

#CFBShearwater #12WingShearwater
🇨🇦✈️ One of two #RCAF-leased King Airs (C-GSYC) were maybe making a VIP transport between Winnipeg, Sault Ste. Marie, and Trenton. I call these the shadow VIP transport fleet, b/c they seem to ferry the brass around (incl #NORAD). #CFC1648 #C076A3

🇷🇺🇺🇸 #Russia|n Navy Pacific Fleet Project 864 (NATO: Vishnya-class) Kareliya|Карелия is operating near #Hawaii, monitoring missile tests, and has been for well over a week, per open sources.

Neither #NORAD or #USNavy tell us anything until we tell them; normal.

🇨🇦🇷🇺🇺🇦 With all the chatter about RUSSIA! / UKRAINE! it's hard to keep facts straight, so I'm keeping an eye out for *unusual* aircraft movements that I can identify, so I can try to make a meaningful, reliable contribution, without using someone else's bouncy dash-cam footage.
What was yesterday?
Easter Sunday.
Do you know who works in the Canadian federal govt on a holiday?
Not many people, but the Canadian Forces are still flying; that's pretty normal, they don't take many breaks.

However, an RCAF CC-144 was flying; THAT'S not normal for a holiday.
🇨🇦 Royal Canadian Air Force CC-144D Challenger 144620 flew from Ottawa to #CFBBagotville to #RAFLuton on Friday 2021-04-02.

My grandad told me this wild story about the birth of the #NORAD #SantaTracker once. I didn't believe him but most of it checks out - you can look it up. I think I've got the dates right. Scared me a little when I was a kid. Just... weird stuff. Details... THREAD BEGINS 1/
My grandpa, Oliver, was born in Montrose, Colorado, 1934. Big into trucks & cars, dreams of being in the military but won't pass muster as he put it for his later phys eval - his interest in aircraft doesn't catch fire till Dec 24, 1948 w a strange article in the local paper
Oliver's 14 now, thinking about his future, when he reads what's supposed to be an official United States Air Force "communique" that's tracking Santa's sleigh, eight reindeer, at 14k feet, the whole bit. It's kiddie stuff, he knows it, only, friends of his have seen things

Merry Christmas. And a thought for all those who can’t be home for the holidays.
Just checking to see if #NORAD is tracking #Santa or #RocketMan tonight
looked under the tree...nothing from #KimJongUn except funny memes...

(3) Oh noes! He held the glass with both hands again! Probably because he unconsciously worries about spilling some, like I do. We're neat freaks and germaphobes, stop judging us!😎
