Not allowed to post links on the hoilday thread but this is worth taking a looking at a feel good xmas story.
SANTA Claus is coming to town ... and in these uncertain times, he's being offered a jet fighter escort.
Canadian pilots seconded to the North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) who normally spend their nights scouring the skies for intruders,
will scramble on Christmas Eve for a special mission.
"Santa has communicated to NORAD that he intends to begin his journey at 3am, December 24," the Canadian armed forces said in a tongue-in-cheek
Two CF-18 Hornet interceptor fighters based in Quebec were on standby to meet the festive visitor when he crossed into Canadian airspace over eastern
Newfoundland and Labrador, the statement said.
Merry Xmas everybody!
