Sorry, haven't taken a pic yet myself, but this recently refurbished T-33 along Portage Avenue in Winnipeg is a very nice re-paint!
It was looking pretty ratty in it's former Golden Centennaires paint job!
Edit... I stopped and took a quick pick of the re-painted T-33 "Red Knight" on Portage Avenue tonight:
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 ... . 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.

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

Sitting here since 2004
