This SAR tech from 424 Search and Rescue Squadron at 8 Wing/CFB Trenton was ambushed by a tree – a vicious tree!
I think that he looks like Ed Robertson of Ed’s Up and the Bare Naked Ladies?
Lloyd Edward Elwyn Robertson, better known as Ed Robertson, was appointed as Honorary Colonel of 424 Squadron in February 2009.
Honorary Colonel Robertson earned his pilot’s license in 2005. In 2006, his new skill was incorporated into the concept of the television show Ed’s Up on the Outdoor Life Network. In this program he flies to various locations using only GPS coordinates. Upon his arrival he is tasked to learn about a local occupation. The third season was filmed over the summer of 2008 and one episode focused on a day in the life of a Search and Rescue Technician.
Over the course of the show’s three seasons Honorary Colonel Robertson worked with the Canadian Army, Navy, and Air Force.
