|RCAF 425 Squadron|
Thank you BD for your honourable service to the men and women of Canada. Especially with remembrance day coming up, we all remember the service you did for your country, your countrymen, and the sacrifices you made to your family. May we all be as selfless as you.
I'm not sure where the #17480 Voodoo crashed, but it should have been somewhere North of the runway. I assume it was lined up with the runway but hit the dirt or trees prior to making it to the runway. From driving around the site, there is no sign of where the plane might have crashed - but it has been 44 years and I presume the site was cleaned up very well after the accident. In 1968 Val D'Or was under it's own administration and was no longer being administered by RCAF Station Senneterre, so I know there will be some information in the Historical Narrative of the base at Val D'Or at the National Archives.
