    Same plane...CF-5 was the builder's (Canadair) designation, and CF116 was the official designation. So you are both right!

    IIRC, many moons ago when I was a wee lad there was a Lancaster on a stick in Goderich, my understanding is it was taken down and restored and flew over my truck at a air show in Sarnia.


    One of these In Sarnia as well, have to get a pic. if I ever get to town.

    A "stickless" real version sits nearby, scheduled for a badly needed paintjob!

    Riverview Park&Zoo Peterborough ON. The plaque doesn't say what kind of plane it is. The mini railroad is just behind the fence and the always fun monkey house is beside the river off to the left.

    The whole rest of the world calls it an F-86 Sabre.

    But who knows what the official Canadian name is? :loco


    :rofl

    That four engine job that Roadholder posted above is a Canadair Argus coastal command long range anti-submarine type aircraft. One just like it set a record for remaining aloft without refuling of over 31 hours. The record stood until Burt Rutan's "around the world in one go" thingie beat it decades later.

    That's the "Air Division" (NATO camouflaged version) Sabre as used by the RCAF in Europe.
    Nice, as most preserved examples seem to be the domestic (bare alloy) or "Golden Hawk" examples. The Canadair Sabre was the hottest ship in the air in 1950's Europe and must have been something to fly then.

    There is one of those in Nanton AB.



    This is one of the nicer mountings of a CF-5A IMHO (Museum of the Regiments, Calgary)[​IMG]


    This site will probably get you going...

    From Dwayne's site, the infamously removed Toronto Lakeshore Lancaster.

    Most of the real warbirds have been taken down and replaced with replicas like here.
