Royal Air Force KC-2 Voyager (Airbus A330-200MRTT) Arriving + Departing | Toronto Pearson Int’lWhat a catch this bird was! Just amazing! A Royal Air Force KC-2 Voyager- the English Airbus A330-200MRTT making its first ever visit to Toronto; now being the third Airbus A330-200MRTT tanker to visit Toronto behind the French Air Force and the Royal Australian Air Force. The aircraft was here to transport Canadian Armed Forces troops to Latvia since the current Royal Canadian Air Force CC-150 Polaris (Airbus A310-300MRTT) fleet is struggling (5 aircraft) with only two Polaris’ converted into tankers, one that isn’t and the Prime Ministers aircraft currently damaged.
