Project: CF-5 Aircraft Mounting Project

CF-5 Aircraft Mount

The Canadian Forces CF-5 Freedom Fighter was ordered by the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1968 as a tactical support aircraft in Canada, as well as being committed to NATO’s northern flank as a rapid deployment force. The 7.87m wingspan aircraft has a maximum speed of 1,575km/h and range of 1,400km. After 27 years of operation, the aircraft was retired in 1995. Defence Construction Canada contracted Western to mount a CF-5 aircraft outside of the Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) building in Toronto, Ontario where it stands as a monument.
