Proof that the museum's collection is international. This is the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15b, dating back to the 1950s, the beginning of the line of East Bloc fighter jets more commonly known as MiGs.
Across from it, and moving forward in fighter evolution, the Avro Canada CF-10 Mk 5D, a line of fighters meant to be all weather for the vastness of the country.
Here we are at the furthest spot from the main entrance of the museum. This is the Bomarc, a remote guided missile that was a relic of the Cold War, meant to intercept Soviet counterparts. The RCAF included them at two bases in Canada, but the devices soon proved not up to the task as the technology evolved, and ended up retired from service.
Looking back at where we've come from, and what's ahead.
