This is the furthest point in the Canada Aviation And Space Museum from the entrance. It is used as a demonstration area. What stands at the background is a Boeing CIM-10B Super Bomarc. This was an anti-aircraft missile used by the American and the Canadian military from 1962-72. Never used in combat, they could be outfitted for nuclear warheads, and once obsolete were used as target drones for more advanced weaponry. This Bomarc was transferred to the Museum in 1972.
Here we have a wider view of the path.
It includes the rear view of the Hornet. Alongside it is a contemporary unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
I return to the Labrador, the CH-113 helicopter used for search and rescue. This one came online in the Canadian Forces in 1963 and saw a long service life, the final of its class to serve. It was retired in 2004 and given to the Museum.
Beside it is a Bell HTL-6 (47G) helicopter. First developed in Texas in 1945, this is the first commercially licensed helicopter and remained in production for three decades. It has been used both in military and the civilian sectors. This particular one served out its career with the Canadian navy before joining the collection here in 1967.
