The Golden Hawk F86 has been a Brockville waterfront fixture for a very long time. This is an example of the Heritage this companies easily displays when it comes to making sure this country keeps the freedom earned over the last 200 years.

I remember when I was a kid watching the Golden Hawks aerobatic air show on more than one occasion so seeing one of the original... More

Brought back childhood memories of Air Force Day and the Golden Hawk displays. Glad to see one preserved in such a public area.
