Beginning Tuesday, the Western Canada Aviation Museum will welcome the Discovery Air “Hawk One” F-86 Sabre for a special visit.
Visitors will be able to take a seat in the cockpit and chat with the pilot.
Chosen by the RCAF in August 1949, the F-86 Sabre served in Western Europe from the early days of the Cold War until 1962 when it was replaced by the CF-104 Starfighter.
The public can view the plane on Tuesday from 12:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for museum members, children and seniors, and $30 for a family.
