    Nice pics. :cool:
    No RCAF fighter squadrons I'm afraid. A few Canucks in USAF Sabres on exchange, but that was it as far as I know.

    Like the SAAF Sabre! Michael Dorn (Startrack) Bought a former SAAF Sabre and brought it to a company I was working for to have it stripped down to bare aluminum. He then had it polished out - real nice aircraft!

    He decided to re-do something with the paint - he told me "It looks strange to have a black guy flying around in a Sabre with SAAF markings!"

    So who had Canadian roundels, the Brits or the Australians? :lol:

    I'm kidding of course. Nice pics. Love the Sea Fury. :cool:
    The roundel and number on the right wing of the L-19 are upside down. I've never noticed that before.
    I wonder if that was common practice for Army aircraft. Hmmm. :-k
