The Hawker Hunter is a transonic British jet-powered fighter aircraft that was developed by Hawker Aircraft for the Royal Air Force (RAF) during the late 1940s and early 1950s. It was designed to take advantage of the newly developed Rolls-Royce Avon turbojet engine and the swept wing, and was the first jet-powered aircraft produced by Hawker to be procured by the RAF. On 7 September 1953, the modified first prototype broke the world air speed record for aircraft, achieving a speed of 727.63 mph (1,171.01 km/h; 632.29 kn).
McDonnell CF-101 Voodoo 101006
The McDonnell CF-101 Voodoo was an all-weather interceptor aircraft operated by the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Canadian Forces between 1961 and 1984. They were manufactured by the McDonnell Aircraft Corporation of St. Louis, Missouri for the United States Air Force (as F-101s), and later sold to Canada. CF-101s replaced the obsolete Avro CF-100 Canuck in the RCAF's all-weather fighter squadrons. The CF-101 served as Canada's primary means of air defence from Quick Reaction Alert facilities at Canadian airbases. The CF-101s were retired in the 1980s and replaced with McDonnell Douglas CF-18 Hornet fighters.
Canadair CT-114 Tutor
The Canadair CT-114 Tutor (company model CL-41) was the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF), and later Canadian Forces, standard jet trainer between the early 1960s and 2000. It was designed and produced by Canadian aircraft manufacturer Canadair. The RCAF would be the dominant user of the type, but a limited number were exported as well. Specifically, the CL-41G model, which was supplied to the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF), served as a ground-attack aircraft up until its withdrawal. The Tutor served as the Canadian Forces primary jet trainer until it was finally retired from this role, being replaced by a combination of the newer British-built CT-155 Hawk and American-built CT-156 Harvard II. The CT-114 Tutor is the aircraft flown by the Canadian Forces Snowbirds aerobatics team.
De Havilland Vampire
The de Havilland Vampire is a British jet fighter developed and manufactured by the de Havilland Aircraft Company. It was the second jet fighter to be operated by the RAF, after the Gloster Meteor, and the first to be powered by a single jet engine. Despite being originally ordered as an experimental aircraft only, during May 1944, it was decided to mass-produce the aircraft as an interceptor for the Royal Air Force (RAF).
History Of Our Vampire:
A79-657(N1933) was built in Sydney Australia in 1952 under license from de Havilland Air Craft. It was known as a T35 or DH115. It was powered by a Goblin turbo jet engine and was a 2 seater. The first Vampire version was a single seater powered by a Rolls Royce Nene. RAAF used the T35 2 seater from 1952 til 1970. It was used as a trainer there. 1970 it was bought & moved to Broomfield CO, USA. 1974 it was bought by Bradley Aircraft Museum in Hartford Connecticut. 1984 it was bought by New England museum. In 1989 it ended up in Alberta Canada. And now it lives with us in London, Ontario.

Avro C-100 Canuck
The Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck (affectionately known as the "Clunk") was a Canadian twinjet interceptor/fighter serving during the Cold War at NATObases in Europe, and as part of NORAD. The CF-100 was the only Canadian-designed fighter to enter mass production, serving primarily with the Royal Canadian Air Force and Canadian Armed Forces and also in small numbers in Belgium. For its day, the CF-100 featured a short takeoff run and high climb rate, making it well suited to its role as an interceptor.
Canadair CL-13/CF-86 Sabre
The Canadair Sabre was a jet fighter aircraft built by Canadair under licence from North American Aviation. A variant of the North American F-86 Sabre, it was produced until 1958 and used primarily by the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) until replaced with the Canadair CF-104 in 1962.
