Not from Australia it appears, 2 x AP-3C Orions and the embarked helos on the 2 surface ships.

But everyone better keep their eyes and especially ears open for HMAS Rankin, it is one pretty sneaky sub!!
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Standard contribution from your neighbours to the north

Canada’s contribution includes HMC Ships, Algonquin, Vancouver, and Regina with two CH-124 Sea King Helicopters and air detachments from 443 Squadron at Pat Bay, plus a team of clearance divers from Fleet Diving Unit (Pacific). For the first time since 1996, there will be six CF-18 Fighters from 3 Wing Bagotville supported by a CC-130 Hercules from 435 Squadron, 17 Wing Winnipeg. Two CP-140 Aurora Maritime Patrol Aircraft from 407 Squadron at 19 Wing Comox round out air force support. HMCS Algonquin and Vancouver leave Esquimalt this Friday, while HMCS Regina is already underway. Following RIMPAC, Regina will carry on to the Western Pacific to make port visits in South Korea, China and Japan.
