Photographer's Remark

419 Squadron CF-5D displays the "Faux Pas" aggressor color scheme, one of five representing Warsaw Pact aircraft markings used by the Canadian Air Force. Delivered December 9, 1968, it was retired when the type was withdrawn in 1995 due to budget constraints. Stored until 2006 when it was donated to the Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin, Alberta.
