19 Wing has a rich history, which began with the construction of the air base in 1942 to protect the strategic Pacific coastline from a possible Japanese invasion.

With six CC115 Buffalo Aircraft and five CH-149 Cormorant Helicopters, 442 Transport and Rescue Squadron carries out search and rescue operations in the busiest region in Canada, stretching from the B.C.-Washington border to the Arctic, and from the Rocky Mountains to 1,200 km out into the Pacific.
