    Nobody replied so I will.

    It was an X2 dropped from a B50 during a test flight if I recall correctly.

    I'm trying to remember where I took this picture ... :D. Oh ya, North Bay. I have no idea what type it is. I do know that there were thousands of training flights that flew over our family farm on Thibeault Hill. They were so low on their landing run that the noise was deafening. Didn't seem to bother the cattle or sheep. My uncle referred to the loudest planes as Voodoos. The busiest years were the 1960s.
    Thanks for bumping this thread ... a nice reminder of many of the places I have been.

    Here in Winnipeg there are a few planes on sticks.

    This F-5 is on Ness Avenue, near the south end of the main runway:

    On the north end of Sharp Boulevard (Airforce Way), in front of RCAF headquarters, is a pretty good collection of planes on sticks... starting out with the CF-104 Lockheed Starfighter. I worked on these at CFB Baden-Soellingen in Germany:

    In this pic, 4 of 'em, from left to right, Harvard, CF-100 Canuck, F-86 Sabre, and another T-33:

    Beechcraft CT-134 Musketeer - they flew these out of Portage:

    414 Sqn still exists. They were stood back up in 2007 to do EW work again, just not in a flying role

    Good one Devildogg.

    Now I see where the Ducati stylists got their inspiration for the MTS.

    I spent a night in Claresholm and found this right at my campground site. A Harvard aircraft on display at Centennial Park along Starline Road.

    This one in Boisetown, New Brunswick is not on a stick but I'm sticking it in here anyways. It's a Grumman TBF Avenger, formerly from the Royal Canadian Navy used as a torpedo bomber, purchased by Forest Protection Limited in New Brunswick in 1958 re-purposed as a water bomber and for spraying DDT :-). Sitting here since 2004
