Photo Comment

Taken on strength March 8, 1948, this North Star took part in the type's stand down ceremony at RCAF Station Trenton on December 8, 1965. Donated to the National Aeronautical Collection, the aircraft spent the next 40 years stored outside due to lack of space. Presently housed in the re-named Canadian Aviation and Space Museum's storage/restoration building opened in 2005, it has been undergoing restoration by volunteers on and off as time and space permit.
