    For this week’s #FighterFriday, the CF-86 Sabre!! #RCAF #RCAFHistory A CF-86 Sabre has its guns harmonized at RCAF Station Uplands in 1953, ensuring that all six machine-guns are aimed properly. The Sabre was the RCAF’s most famous and unanimously well-liked operational fighter. Its pilots and ground crews called it the “Sword”. Its original design was based on captured wartime German research which contributed to the aircraft’s reputation as the superlative combat aircraft of the 1950s. RCAF Sabre squadrons were a force to be reckoned with in the European skies. The Sabre was the RCAF's last fighter armed with guns alone. From 1950 until 1970, 1,184 Sabres flew with various units in Canada and Europe.

    Shared from the The Canadian Forces Snowbirds Facebook page: In 2016, the Royal Canadian Air Force is commemorating the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP), which ran from 1939 to 1945, and the 75th anniversary of the establishment of RCAF’s 400-series squadrons. These squadrons, which continue to serve Canada and Canadians to this day, came into being as a result of Article XV of the BCATP agreement. The Snowbirds tailart for 2016 will reflect this program. The Harvard is perhaps one of the most recognizable aircraft used for training during the BCATP. #CFSnowbirds #BCATP #RCAFHistory

    The CF-18 Demo jet takes over the sky during it's first day of flying! #CF18Demo #BCATP #AIRPower Photos by Mike Reyno This year's CF-18 Demo Hornet paint scheme commemorates the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP). In 2016, the RCAF is commemorating the BCATP, which ran from 1939 to 1945, and the 75th anniversary of the establishment of RCAF’s 400-series squadrons. These squadrons, which continue to serve Canada and Canadians to this day, came into being as a result of Article XV of the BCATP agreement.
