A flying tribute to a century of aviation history

“Resurrect, Celebrate and Motivate” is the theme behind the refurbishment of a classic RCAF F-86 Sabre 5 (Canadair Serial Number 23314) in the colours of the legendary Golden Hawks aerobatic team that thrilled Canadians from coast-to-coast for five airshow seasons commencing in 1959. This flying tribute to a century of aviation history in 2009 was made possible by a unique partnership between the Vintage Wings of Canada, presenting sponsor Discovery Air and the Department of National Defence, assisted by generous donations from the private sector.
