This is an actual airplane mounted on a concrete tower to commemorate the memory of allied solders in all previous wars.It was erected in 1968 on Brockville's peninsula park called Blockhouse Island, which projects into the St. Lawrence River. The story of the jet use in Canada's former aerobatic precision flying team is detailed on a historic plaque nearby.

It is good to see part of Canada`s once famous aerobatic team preserved and on display. Although in decent condition, I have seen this jet on display elsewhere with a better paint job. Over`all though, it`s not bad.

I saw the plane from the water. It is a fine tribute to our formerly great air force. A monument to a time when Canada had an Air Force.
