What a hoot!!! We got to Mont Apica in 65 and there were three things we learned real quick...those VooDoo pilots from Bagotville showed no mercy to scare the crap out of us whenever they screamed past at rooftop levels, all kids wore pantyhose over their heads in the summer (blackflies were thick), and the foggers were meant as entertainment for kids! God I loved running through that white smoke, and the smell??...awesome! Maybe that's why I'm the way I am today..
I was reading a book called "Treasured Scales of the Kinosoo" about the history of Cold Lake, Alberta (including the base) and I came across this:
"The first airspray got underway on May 31, 1956, by a DAK from 105 Communications and Rescue Flight from Edmonton. The aerial DDT spray was to control mosquitoes but it controlled seagulls, fish and birds in the area. Cold Lake fish were also affected."
No mention that the spray used to control brats.
