By James T. McKenna | September 12, 2007

Canada’s military is expected to announce an overhaul of the landing gear for its AgustaWestland CH-149 Cormorant search and rescue aircraft today. Canada’s defense minister, Peter MacKay, is to visit IMP Aerospace, where he is expected to sign a contract that would be worth hundreds of millions of dollars, according to The ChronicleHerald.ca. Canada ordered 15 Cormorants in 1998, and they entered service in 2001, flying out of Trenton, Ont., Gander, Newfoundland, and Comox and Greenwood, British Columbia. For related news
