Restoration of cold war fighter jet underway in Springbank
from CTV News
A group of former Air Force men and retired airplane mechanics are employed in a labour of love at the Springbank Airport, sharing stories while restoring a vintage cold war fighter jet. The plane, a CF-104 Starfighter, was the fastest plane ever employed by the Royal Canadian Air Force and a major work horse during the cold war. Capable of launching nuclear strikes, this specific aircraft was based in Germany and flew reconnaissance missions over Europe between 1962 and 1986.
