On July 18, 2018, hundreds of people gathered on a Halifax jetty to say goodbye to 240 military personnel on board HMCS Ville de Quebec.
Families and friends waved goodbye to the Royal Canadian Navy frigate that was making history as it carried the new CH-148 Cyclone maritime helicopter on its first operational deployment.
The ship was setting course for Operation Reassurance, where it joined Standing NATO Maritime Group Two (SNMG2) in the Mediterranean Sea. During the six-month deployment, Ville de Quebec (VDQ) and its Cyclone conducted surface patrols and subsurface surveillance while participating in training exercises to ensure combat readiness.
